Rafael Nadal has signed a three-year sponsorship deal with IT consulting giant Infosys. The company is already an innovation partner for the ATP Tour, Roland Garros, the Australian Open, and the International Hall of Fame.
Nadal has announced that he will retire at the end of 2023. This means that the new partnership will continue into Nadal’s retirement.
Speaking about the partnership, Nadal said,
I’m very happy to work closely with Infosys, as they work to not only evolve the experience of tennis to the times, but also empower people in our communities to be part of a brighter future. I love the way Infosys has brought its digital expertise across industries to the global tennis ecosystem. It has transformed the tennis experience for a billion global fans and truly empowered all players on the tour with analytics that they could have only dreamt of a few years ago. Also, the impact that Infosys is making beyond the court – creating the next opportunity for people, businesses, and communities – deeply inspires me. I believe it’s our shared aspiration to create societal good that makes our handshake truly meaningful.
Though Rafael Nadal has had several sponsorship deals over the years, Infosys is his first collaboration with a digital services company. Nadal will work with the company to develop an AI-powered match analysis tool to provide live insights from tennis matches.
