Tennis has long been popular in Australia, thanks to a long line of champions and all-time greats. This popularity is being echoed by PEUGEOT, which has increased its commitment over three decades with a program of support, plus a raft of new initiatives.

ROLAND-GARROS

PEUGEOT's association with tennis started back in the 1970s. At Roland-Garros, we've been present in the Tournament VIP Village since 1984 and we've been Official Transporter since 1989. The PEUGEOT brand celebrates its 33rd year of partnership with Roland-Garros in 2017.

PEUGEOT will provide more than 200 vehicles during this year's tournament in May and June to transport the players, VIPS, officials and the public.

ATP WORLD TOUR

At the beginning of 2016, PEUGEOT became a Platinum partner of the ATP World Tour as well as the Official Car supplier at more than 30 ATP World Tour tournaments, with some 500 vehicles that provide first class transportation services for players, officials, VIPs and special guests to the events.

PEUGEOT has had an involvement in tennis for more than three decades, and this latest partnership strengthens PEUGEOT’s long association with tennis by officially linking its presence in 160 countries with the ATP World Tour’s global footprint.

As part of its increased involvement in tennis, PEUGEOT has also established a new digital platform for fans: Drive To Tennis.
