PVH Corp. announced that its IZOD brand is the 2011 "Official Apparel of the Champions Series" 12-city tennis tournament. Through the sponsorship, PVH is outfitting all tournament officials, ball kids, and staff in IZOD apparel.

The 2011 Champions Series is a competitive tennis circuit featuring legendary tennis icons and world-renowned champions Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, John McEnroe, Jim Courier, Bjorn Borg, Michael Chang and Mats Wilander. The champions compete for the #1 ranking of the Champions Series with $1 million of bonus pool money on the line for the top three finishers on the circuit at the end of the season.

IZOD's involvement in the Champions Series tennis tournament as "Official Apparel Sponsor" is part of a multi-tiered brand strategy to reach active minded consumers through key sport sponsorships. The Champions Series tournament is played annually in major U.S. arenas throughout the Fall season.

"We are equally proud to welcome such a prestigious brand as IZOD to our family of corporate partners and look forward to a great season with them", said Jonathan Venison, Founding Partner of InsideOut Sports & Entertainment.

In each city, the tennis legends will share their on-court expertise at exclusive tennis clinics and mingle with VIP guests at receptions prior to each event. Sponsors and fans will enjoy unique access and entertainment from some of the greatest tennis stars of our time on the Champions Series circuit.
