Current partnerships include:

• Host city partners Tourism and Events Queensland and Brisbane Marketing, Tourism WA and Destination NSW will host the tournament across Australia
• Luxury watchmaker Rolex will be the official timekeeper of the ATP Cup
• Marriott Bonvoy will accommodate the playing group, coaches, VIPs and tournament staff at participating properties in each city
• ANZ continues to support Tennis Australia’s grassroots program ANZ Tennis Hot Shots with a number of participation initiatives taking place during the tournament
• A Kia Motors fleet will transport players and officials in each city
• Dunlop will supply the official tennis balls
• Carlton & United Breweries (CUB)’s Stella Artois and Pure Blonde Organic Cider, Schweppes, Canadian Club, Aperol and Treasury Wines will keep spectators refreshed
• La Roche-Posay will provide spectators with sunscreen
• Toshiba will provide onsite technology support; and
• BLK Sport will outfit staff, ballkids, officials and volunteers in technical apparel.

The new ATP Cup is an annual 24-country team competition featuring $22 million prize money and a maximum of 750 singles and 250 doubles ATP Rankings points. 

Staged in partnership with Tennis Australia, the ATP Cup will begin the 2020 season.
