Amundi Europe’s largest asset manager, has announced an extension to its premium partnership for the 2023 KPMG Women’s Irish Open at Dromoland Castle, Co. Clare for the second consecutive year.
The 2022 tournament, which attracted over 24,000 spectators, was a huge success and building on that for the 2023 tournament is well underway with the event now only a matter of weeks away (Aug 31 – Sep 3). This year once again there will be a stellar lineup of elite female golfers competing for the €400,000 prize fund including Ireland’s Leona Maguire and among them will be players from the Amundi Women’s Talent Programme.
Commenting on the partnership, David Harte, Chief Executive Officer of Amundi Ireland said, “At Amundi, we remain dedicated to championing women’s golf globally and our ongoing partnership with the KPMG Women’s Irish Open is a reflection of that commitment. As the exclusive asset management partner, we are delighted to support the growth of women’s golf here in Ireland. This partnership aligns with our values of promoting diversity and inclusivity and we are excited to welcome players from our own Amundi Women’s Talent Programme to compete in the tournament. We wish all players the best of luck in the tournament.”
Tournament Director and CEO of Forefront Sports, Cian Branagan commented: “I’m thrilled that Amundi have extended their partnership with the 2023 KPMG Women’s Irish Open. They played a vital part in the event’s success last year and we look forward to working with their team again for this year’s championship.”
While Mark Nolan of Dromoland Castle was also delighted with the continuation of support from a key partner for the tournament; “Amundi’s continued support is a testament to their unwavering commitment to women’s golf and the advancement of women in sports. With their partnership, we are confident that this year’s tournament will be an unforgettable experience, showcasing the incredible talent and passion of the athletes. Together, we will create a platform that celebrates excellence, empowers athletes, and inspires future generations of female golfers. We extend our deepest gratitude to Amundi for their dedication and look forward to another successful event at Dromoland Castle this August.”
Amundi’s long-term commitment to women’s golf was evident in 2021, when it became the title partner for 5 years of the women’s golf major in Evian, France, renamed ‘The Amundi Evian Championship’ and that commitment strengthened throughout 2022 with its relaunch of a Ladies European Tour tournament in Germany.
