Singapore, October 7 2016 - Sports fans are in for a treat this October as the Singapore Swimming Association and Lagardère Sports have joined forces to offer a limited edition Ultimate Weekend with Champions sports pass for the FINA/airweave Swimming World Cup presented by Yakult on October 21 and 22, and on October 23, the first day of the 2016 BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global.
The Ultimate Weekend with Champions sports pass provides fans an opportunity to witness Olympic medalists including Chad Le Clos (South Africa), Daiya Seto (Japan), Katinka Hosszú (Hungary) and Kyle Chalmers (Australia), battle it out in the pool, as well as the greatest eight in women’s tennis on the court. There will be 100 passes made available from today at S$70, plus a S$6 booking fee, giving fans a discount of up to S$35.
Sarah Clements, Vice President of Tennis - Asia at Lagardère Sports said, “There are tremendous synergies between the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global, the crown jewel of the WTA calendar, and the FINA/airweave Swimming World Cup presented by Yakult. Both are events that will see athletes at the top of their game battle it out, and are wonderful spectacles that will excite, entertain and inspire communities and future generations of sports personalities.”
“The collaboration is an exciting one, and has a lot of potential both on and off the court. We look forward to identifying greater synergies moving forward,” she added.
Edwin Ker, Executive Director, Singapore Swimming Association said, “There are not many sporting events that bring together Singapore world champions and Olympic medalists, and to have two together as part of one package across a weekend is fantastic news for sports fans. An initiative like this will bring athletes and stakeholders of two outstanding sports closer together, and this will only bode well for the future of both sports in Singapore.”
Commenting on the announcement, Manu Sawhney, Chief Executive Officer, Singapore Sports Hub said, “October is set to be a spectacular month for sports in Singapore. The 2016 BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore and the FINA/airweave Swimming World Cup will see elite athletes vying for some of the highest honours in their fields at the Singapore Sports Hub. This is a wonderful opportunity for local fans and international visitors to get up close and personal with these athletes, while catching top-tier sporting action.’
