FILA Announces Sponsorship Of Argentine Tennis Association

(FILA Global) - FILA has signed on as the Official Apparel and Footwear Sponsor of the Argentine Tennis Association (AAT). The multi-year partnership will include FILA outfitting Argentina’s Davis Cup and Fed Cup teams, as well the association’s junior and development programs.

The new sponsorship of the AAT adds to a significant list of international partnerships for FILA in South America including the Argentina Open, Brasil Open & Rio Open and the Los Cabos Open in Mexico. FILA is also the Official Supplier to Tennis Canada and develops a high performance uniform program, as well as a fan-centered licensed apparel collection for Team Canada.

FILA sponsors Diego Schwartzman, World No. 13, winner of the 2018 Rio Open and a native of Buenos Aires, as well as fellow Argentinians Horacio Zeballos, winner of 2018 doubles titles at the Argentina Open, Swedish Open and the German Tennis Championships, and doubles specialist Máximo González.

The newly christened partnership between FILA and the AAT will be on display when Argentina hosts Colombia in a Davis Cup match on September 14-16 in San Juan. Team members, including FILA athletes Schwartzman, Zeballos and González, will wear an exclusive collection featuring a sky blue and white colorway that honors the country’s flag - and it will include training gear and on-court apparel, along with a special jacket and pants. The Argentine collection, a special performance product, is inspired by FILA’s tennis heritage and classic designs, and made with high-performance fabric and technology for world-class athletes.
