ATP Finals to promote Canary Islands

Men’s tennis tour the ATP has agreed a two-year deal for its season-ending Finals with Canary Islands Tourism.

The agreement names the Canary Islands as the official tourism destination of the ATP Finals for the final two editions of its staging at The O2 in London, England.

Canary Islands Tourism becomes a gold partner of the ATP Finals in a deal that includes on-court branding and hospitality rights.

Isaac Castellano, Tourism Minister of the Canary Islands, said: “The Nitto ATP Finals are a perfect fit given the connection with values such as innovation and modernity, as well as an association with world-leading brands in the international market.

“Linking the Canary Islands with the Nitto ATP Finals will contribute to our international promotion and will complement our current strategy by offering an appropriate stage for the Canary Islands, as European leaders in the tourism sector.”
