ITTF lands three equipment sponsors for Team World Cup
The International Table Tennis Federation has added three new equipment sponsors to its commercial line-up for the 2018 Team Word Cup in London.
San-Ei Tibhar, a newly-formed venture that is made up of Japan-based San-Ei, the table sponsor at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, and Tibhar, a German company, has signed up to become the provider of tables at the Team World Cup.
San-Ei's sponsorship deal with the ITTF also includes the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
Double Fish, the China-based table tennis equipment manufacturer, has come on board as the ball sponsor for the event.
Finally, Trioflor, the Chinese floor company, will be providing a dark blue floor for the event.
All three deals also include the 2019 Team World Cup.
The ITTF is now brokering most of its sponsorship deals in-house after ending a long-term partnership with TMS International last year.
