ANZ Royal hints at more

One of Cambodia’s leading banks, ANZ Royal, will enhance its support for Tennis Cambodia in a phased manner over the next few years.

In an exclusive interview with the Post, ANZ Royal CEO Grant Knuckey told the Post that given the bank’s remarkable growth and its connection to the ANZ Group, which is one the sport’s most high profile sponsors, there remained a wide range of opportunities to increase their support to Cambodia.

The bank is currently one of the many co-sponsors of the on-going ITF Cambodian Futures series, but Grant envisions a greater involvement.

“I have watched Tennis Cambodia raise its profile and international visibility over the last three years. I have been holding discussions with secretary general Tep Rithivit as to how best we can strengthen our partnership in the future,” said Knuckey.

Tep Rithivit told the Post: “Its a great privilege for Tennis Cambodia to have the backing of a reputed bank like ANZ Royal. Grant Knuckey has great passion for tennis and I am confident of his continued support to help us reach our goals.”

In response to a question whether ANZ Royal will help promote in Cambodia ANZ’s signature Hot Shots initiative, which covers the 5 to 10 age group, Knuckey said: “We have not identified any specific program but we are actively considering many options.”

ANZ is the Diamond sponsor of the Shanghai Rolex Masters. Held each October, ANZ will be the international banking and finance partner of Asia’s premier Masters tournament up to 2017.

The 2015 Australian Open marks the end of ANZ’s five-year association with the season’s first Grand Slam as its associate sponsor.
