French Tennis Federation inks partnership with Renault until 2026

Both Roland-Garros and Renault are dedicated to advancing a more environmentally friendly path.

The French Tennis Federation has announced a new five-year partnership with the French carmaker, Renault. Following this new deal, the French carmaker has been labelled as a premium partner of Roland-Garros from 2022 to 2026.

The Roland-Garros tournament will take place from May 16 to June 5 and will usher in a new era in which the Parisian Grand Slam and French carmaker will unite around common goals such as fashion and boldness.

Both Roland-Garros and Renault are dedicated to advancing a more environmentally friendly path. Sustainable mobility is a concern for both brands, with Renault already venturing on a transformational journey that will see it become Europe’s first all-electric brand by 2030.

In terms of the arrangement, Renault will provide the tournament with a total of 160 vehicles, including a fleet of 100 new Renault Megane E-Tech Electric vehicles.

The Renault logo will also be decorated on the nets at the Stade Roland-Garros’s five main courts: Philippe-Chatrier, Suzanne-Lenglen, Simonne-Mathieu, and courts 7 and 14.

Throughout the tournament, Renault will have a stand at the Stade Roland-Garros. The stand, which has a floor space of 150m2, will introduce visitors to the company’s electric and hybrid vehicles. The Renault Megane E-Tech Electric, the Renault 5 Prototype, and the all-new Renault Austral, which will be disclosed to the world at Roland-Garros, will be on display. Visitors to the stand will also be treated to some interesting new experiences from the automaker.

FFT President Gilles Moretton, “We are thrilled with this Premium partnership, which was an obvious step for two French brands with a strong international dimension. It’s an ambitious partnership and we’re both committed to shaking things up and achieving our sustainable mobility goals in the very near future. Renault is also planning to extend the partnership beyond Roland-Garros, which gives us great cause for satisfaction.”
