Wimbledon is one of the most famous, revered and recognizable sports events in the world and is acknowledged by professionals and commentators alike as the world's premier tennis tournament.
Since The Championship's advent in 1877, the name 'Wimbledon' has gained worldwide recognition and appeal. It is synonymous with not only being the premier tennis event in the world but also with quality, tradition and heritage.
With recent expansion into the Far East and a successful brand collection with outlets around the world, Wimbledon has become more than a tennis tournament, but a global brand with an established, growing licensing programme. Wimbledon has a proud, timeless tradition and rightly represents the Best of British.
In addition to handling all licensing on behalf of the All England Lawn Tennis Club, IMG also manage the on-site retailing both during The Championships and year-round. This means that IMG works closely with the Club’s UK-based licensees both as a licensing agent and as a wholesale customer, thus establishing a close collaboration from contract stage to early designs right through to sales to the end customer. With a few exceptions, nearly all products sold on-site at Wimbledon are supplied by licensees.
IMG also manages the relationship between the Club’s licensed e-commerce retailer, the Club and its licensees. Visit www.wimbledon.com/shop to view the Wimbledon Online Shop.
