Special To NYSportsJournalism.com

January 23, 2017: Audit, consulting, tax and advisory services firm Deloitte knows a lot about numbers and stats, so in what can be deemed an organic move, the company has signed a "long-term, wide-ranging" deal with the U.S. Tennis Assn., the overseeing body for the sport in the U.S.

Under terms of the alliance, Deloitte becomes an official sponsor for the U.S. Davis Cup and U.S. Fed Cup teams, as well as become an official sponsor of the U.S. Open and the first sponsor of the Wheelchair Competition at the U.S. Open this August-September.

Financial terms were not shared.

Deloitte will support the partnership with multi-media marketing and other on-court, front office and community platforms.

As a sponsor of the Davis Cup and Fed Cup, Deloitte’s logo will appear on U.S. team warm-up jackets. Deloitte said it would also support U.S. team events in markets where the competitions are being held.

In addition, Deloitte is working with the USTA to "revamp USTA’s core enterprise digital technology and build the USTA’s grassroots digital capabilities."

A key focus will be the "development of a suite of products to help the USTA deepen its connection to tennis players." 

Deloitte said its would support USTA initiatives and assets, including "programs that celebrate community impact and promote inclusion, empowered well-being and innovation in and beyond the tennis community."
