WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., August 15, 2022 – The USTA and Cadillac today announced a multi-year sponsorship for Cadillac to serve as the Official Vehicle of the US Open. The sponsorship begins with the 2022 US Open, where Cadillac will have a significant on-site presence at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, including prominent display of the first-ever all-electric Cadillac, the Cadillac LYRIQ1.
Cadillac’s on-site presence at the US Open will include the ‘Cadillac Showroom,’ a 3,000-square-foot experiential space that will house the Cadillac ELECTRIQ Theater, showcasing the brand’s vision for an all-electric future.
Cadillac’s white crest will be featured on the nets of all competition courts at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center during the US Open, including all stadium courts. Cadillac will also provide vehicles to serve as the US Open’s official tournament transportation fleet that will serve over 250 players.
Cadillac will continue the tradition of providing complimentary parking for Cadillac owners who drive to the US Open in select paid lots around the facility. On Friday, September 2, Cadillac will sponsor both the day and night sessions and provide lucky fans with a front-row, courtside seat upgrade. During the evening session, the first 10,000 fans will receive a Cadillac “Be Iconic” hat.
“The US Open and Cadillac are a perfect match,” said Deanne Pownall, Managing Director, Corporate Partnerships, USTA. “Cadillac is an iconic American luxury brand with a commitment to excellence, innovation and equality. The US Open Tennis Championships is the biggest and boldest tennis tournament and will provide Cadillac with a spectacular showcase to demonstrate its bold vision to fans on-site and around the world. We are thrilled to be welcoming Cadillac to the US Open as a major sponsor that will electrify the fan experience and play an important role in the overall operation of the tournament for many years to come.”
