UNIQLO announces that it has signed a multi-year contract with Australian pro golfer and world number seven Adam Scott, who will now act as Global Brand Ambassador to the leading global Japanese retailer.

This marks the first time for UNIQLO to partner with a professional golfer.

He will also take part in a range of promotional activities for the company, including a UNIQLO global polo shirt campaign to be launched in mid-April.

Commenting on the partnership, Tadashi Yanai , Fast Retailing Chairman, President & CEO, said, “Our Brand Ambassador initiative targets individuals who are not only successful and ambitious in their own right, but also socially conscious and driven to give back to society.

From this perspective, Mr. Scott is a wonderful addition. UNIQLO understands, and appreciates, Mr. Scott's determination to become the best golfer in the world. As a company, we aim to provide clothing that meets the needs of anyone, anywhere. Given its widespread following worldwide and accessibility regardless of age, golf is a good match for us. Through this kind of initiative, we aim to improve the lives of people the world over."

Adam Scott said, "I am thrilled to have been appointed as a UNIQLO Global Brand Ambassador. I have come across UNIQLO many times in my travels, and frequently visit UNIQLO stores. It is a brand with an established history of innovation, offering high quality clothing backed by quality materials and an attention to detail."

As of April 2013, Adam Scott is the seventh ranked professional golfer in the world. A winner of twenty events worldwide, Adam first competed in the Masters in 2002. Adam's global victories include the 2004 Players Championship, 2006 Tour Championship and 2011 WGC Bridgestone Invitational.
