Fila Golf Extends Apparel Sponsorship Agreement with LPGA Tour Star Stacy Lewis
(MONTREAL) – Fila Golf – a men’s and women’s apparel line internationally recognized for its authentic sports heritage and exclusively licensed by Fersten Worldwide (FW) in North America -- in conjunction with Sterling Sports Management, announces the extension of its sponsorship agreement with LPGA Tour star Stacy Lewis.
The 25-year-old American, who recorded top-20 finishes in three LPGA Tour majors in 2010, will continue wearing Fila Golf apparel in competition and showcasing the brand’s iconic logo on her clothing. She will also participate in company promotions, be featured on www.filagolf.com, and in its marketing materials.
“I am thrilled to continue my partnership with Fila Golf,” says Lewis. “The brand represents the best in authentic athletic performance. The new fabrics and styles look and fit great but they also allow me to move freely, stay cool and play my best.”
Currently ranked 20th on the LPGA Money List, Lewis turned pro in 2008 following one of the most decorated amateur careers of the past decade. As a member of the University of Arkansas women’s golf team, she was a four-time All American, won 12 collegiate tournaments and captured the 2007 NCAA Division I National Championship. The No. 1 ranked amateur in the nation in 2007 and 2008, Lewis earned her LPGA Tour card after winning Qualifying School.
In addition to her accomplishments on the golf course, she continues to inspire thousands of scoliosis patients around the world by thriving with her condition, despite playing with a metal rod and five screws in her back.
