Macao (Golf) Open yet to score title sponsor

95

The upcoming Macao (Golf) Open 2017 is still seeking a title sponsor, according to information provided by the Sports Bureau (ID) to Business Daily. The event takes place from October 17-22 and is jointly organised by the Sports Bureau and Macau Golf Association.
‘Up until this moment there is no title or main sponsor for this year’s event. Notwithstanding this situation, organisation for the event is ongoing according to the schedule and we will endeavour [to do] our best efforts to stage a world class tournament and to continue the success of this major sporting event in Macau,’ reads the Sports Bureau’s response to Business Daily enquiries.
The Bureau did not directly answer questions regarding how the event would be financed, given the lack of title sponsor.
This year’s event will welcome special guest Pavit Tangkamolprasert, the champion of last year’s tournament ‘to defend his title this year,’ notes the Bureau.
With regard to other potential invitees, the Bureau says it is still ‘liaising with all parties concerned and further information will be announced in due course’.
