ATP WORLD TOUR
London, England

London, UK. The ATP, governing body of the mens professional tennis circuit, today unveiled the latest evolution of its advertising campaign - FEEL IT. Now in its second year, the multimillion dollar campaign, will again feature ATP World Tour stars including Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Andy Roddick, Andy Murray and James Blake, showcasing the sports core values as a one-on-one gladiatorial battle of world class athletes, full of intensity and passion.

Created as a flexible and adaptable central resource that can be utilised in any of the ATPs 63 tournament markets, the campaign has been specifically designed to include any player featured on the ATP World Tour and is part of a global marketing initiative in 2009.


The 2009 version of FEEL IT will focus on bringing to life the unique global aspect of the ATP World Tour. The evolution of the campaign will position ATP World Tour stars like Rafael Nadal as titans of the sport; playing tennis that is out of this world. The new execution will bring to life many of the amazing locations of the ATP World Tour and will focus on communicating the ultimate goal of the season, to become the 2009 ATP World Tour Champion.

Rafael Nadal, World No 1, said: "I like the new ATP advertising campaign. They have done a great job with this since it is cool and spectacular and although I consider myself someone very down to Earth it is funny to see us up there playing with the stars. I hope this campaign helps bring more attention, new people and fans to the tennis tournaments. I understand this is the goal and I am sure we will make it happen."

The FEEL IT campaign, featuring a full suite of above and below the line executions including TV spots, billboards, online banners, virals, merchandise, fan giveaways and PR stunts, has proved to be a huge success in 2008 with ATP World Tour tournaments around the world using the campaign for advertising and promotional purposes.

FEEL IT is one part of a global marketing overhaul for the ATP which also includes a full rebrand of the Tour, a new online approach and a global promotional campaign designed to better promote the sport globally and broaden the appeal of mens professional tennis by making it easier for fans to follow. The changes have been made following two years of extensive and independent, global research of over 20,000 fans at all levels of tennis interest.

From January 2009 the Tours name and logo will change to ATP World Tour to reflect the unique, global nature of the mens professional tennis circuit. In addition the tournament categories will be renamed to reflect the importance of the particular event. There will be three tiers of events:

ATP World Tour Masters 1000
ATP World Tour 500
ATP World Tour 250

The new category names reflect the number of South African Airways 2009 ATP Rankings points available to the tournament winner and at a stroke help fans better understand how tournaments relate to each other and to the ranking table.

At the end of the season the worlds top 8 ranked mens singles players and 8 doubles teams, based on their performance throughout the year, will qualify to compete in the seasons climax - the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. To be held at Londons O2 arena, the event will officially crown the 2009 ATP World Tour Champion and determine the final 2009 player standings.

To support and communicate these exciting changes to players, sponsors, media and fans, the ATP has developed a new, strong and distinctive ATP World Tour approach that will bring all 63 tournaments in 31 countries under one, exciting and accessible overarching brand. The logo, along with the respective tournament category will, for the first time, be included on the net at every ATP World Tour event from early 2009 as an easy way for fans at home to understand the new brand.

Phil Anderton, ATP Chief Marketing Officer, said: When over 60% of fans tell you that they do not understand how your Tour works, then changes are needed. We are the worlds most global sporting circuit, attracting millions of fans, but it is clear that we can still achieve much more for mens professional tennis. The marketing strategy announced today will help us to do just that by establishing a new, simplified, tour structure that tells the best story of our global tour: the best players, playing in the best stadia in the best territories at the right time. The ATP World Tour is undergoing huge change from next season, but it is change that will help unlock the huge potential within mens professional tennis. Source: www.atptennis.com
