The Montreal edition of the Rogers cup is less than a month away and so far all of the ten top ranked men have confirmed they will participate in this prestigious tournament. Celebrating the fifth year of its sponsorship Rogers has created a Micro-site for those planning to attend the tournament in Montreal from August 2nd to 11th.
TennisRogersMTL.com allows its users to consult and participate to content about anything and everything tennis : the best courts to play, where to go before and after a match, lessons in style, tennis history, fun videos, sports apps as well as information about the Rogers Cup. An online concierge service allows users to get personalised information when they ask a tennis related question on TennisRogersMTL.com. If the answer to your question isn’t already available a live person will reply to you by email within 24 hours…talk about helpful. The site is perfect to help you get ready for the Cup, know more about the sport, style, tennis related technology as well as getting to know the up and coming neighborhood around the Jarry Stadium. It is the only place to find out what to wear at the event, how to photograph tennis and where to eat after the game and much more. Check it out in English or French
And there’s more. Québec users will also be able to participate in a daily contest. Every day between July 3rd and August 10th, TennisRogersMTL.com will raffle off a pair of tickets to the 2013 edition of the Rogers Cup, presented by National Bank.
But Rogers didn’t stop at the Micro-site to celebrate its five years of sponsorship. In cooperation with the Montreal based artistic collective En Masse Rogers commissioned a huge tennis themed mural. It was begun during the Mural Festival that was held between June 13th and 16th on St-Laurent blvd. In all, six artists painted on the five storey high wall over a period of eight days. The mural portrays a fifty foot high tennis player that has a creative universe exploding off her giant racket. A tribute to the love of the game and to the meeting of sport and art. The mural embellishes the neighborhood and brings a smile to the face of the thousands of people that pass it by every week. Take a look at it on the East side of St-Laurent just south of Prince-Arthur. It is on the wall of a building on the north side of the parking lot.
