Zug, Switzerland – PERSONALSHOP, Austria’s leading private mail-order company with over two million satisfied customers, has been named the new Presenting Sponsor of ski jumping’s Four Hills Tournament in an agreement brokered by Infront, the event’s exclusive marketing partner.
The agreement will run from the 2022/23 edition until the conclusion of the 2024/25 tournament. It marks the first time the brand sponsors a major sports event. PERSONALSHOP will enjoy wide exposure across the whole venue, including on LED banners, at the start and exit gate, on the leaderboard, jump-off platform, coaches stand and warm-up area. The brand will be omnipresent at the venues in Oberstdorf, Innsbruck, Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Bischofshofen and perfectly staged for the TV consumers at home.
