HSBC’s international investment and support for golf continues to grow. In 2006 it provided lucrative sponsorship for four leading tournaments across the globe – namely the HSBC World Matchplay Championship at Wentworth, the Women’s World Matchplay Championship in the USA, the HSBC Champions Tournament in China and the Indonesian Open in Jakarta.
As well as title sponsorship of some of the world’s finest golfing events, HSBC is also committed to growing the sport at a grassroots level. In the UK alone, a comprehensive development programme includes HSBC Wee Wonders, a dynamic junior golf tournament for 5-12 year old boys and girls, the HSBC Amateur Match Play, a high-profile amateur equivalent match play competition and this year will host the first HSBC Junior Match Play tournament for 12-18 year old boys and girls. This truly international sponsorship portfolio is not only indicative of the bank’s alliance to one of the world’s most popular sports, but also reflects the values of integrity and honesty which HSBC and golf share. As the ‘world’s local bank’ HSBC is committed to being an influential and significant part of this global community, helping it to grow and develop.
