This partnership provides the perfect opportunity for us to continue our association with prestigious sporting events and, through the best in class viewing experience that our TVs offer, bring spectators closer to the action.”
Richard Hills, Europe’s Ryder Cup Director, said: “With up to 50,000 spectators on site each day, it’s imperative that the action is accessible to all ticket holders in all the key areas, both on and off the course. With the full range of Philips LCD televisions at our disposal, we believe that the spectators in the public areas such as the Tented Village and the corporate areas such as Hospitality, as well as the media in the Media Centre, will all enjoy the highest quality pictures of the two Teams battling for The Ryder Cup.”
