The Lagardère Sports agency has agreed a two-year extension to its partnership with the French Tennis Federation (FFT) to remain one of the official hospitality agencies of Roland-Garros grand slam tournament and the Paris Masters, an ATP Masters 1000 event on the men’s tour.

The agreement is for the 2020 and 2021 editions of the two tournaments, for which the FFT grants hospitality contracts on a non-exclusive basis.

Laurent Moretti, managing director of Lagardère Sports France, said: “The hospitality offers of these two tournaments are among the most prestigious on the French market and we are particularly happy with the possibility of offering them to our customers.

“Since 2008, we have shown great professionalism in marketing these offers and this is reflected in the level of commercial performance edition after edition.”

The Lagardère Sports deal comes after the French division of the Infront agency agreed a similar two-year contract last month.
