Cityneon Sdn Bhd and The Empire Hotel and Country Club Sign Agreement For Official Outdoor Media Partnership for the Royal Trophy – Europe vs Asia Golf Championship


Monday, 20 the February 2012 – In preparation for the sixth edition of The Royal Trophy tournament later this year, The Empire Hotel and Country Club signed an Official Media Partnership agreement today with Cityneon Sdn Bhd for the promotion of the upcoming Royal Trophy event to take place in 14-16 December, 2012.

Cityneon will be an Official Outdoor Media Partner for this prestigious golf tournament which brings together the best golfers from Europe and Asia in a major continental team match-play series of matches. Originating from the vision of legendary five-time Major winner, the late Severiano Ballesteros, who intended to gift the Asian Continent with the same golf growth impetus the European Continent experienced in the 1980s and 1990s as a result of the Ryder Cup; the sixth edition of the Championship promises to be unforgettable.

Japanese golfing great Naomichi ‘Joe’ Ozaki has been re-appointed to lead Asia for the fifth consecutive time at the next edition of the Royal Trophy – in a demonstration by the two-time Japanese Order of Merit Champion of his unrelenting commitment to secure one more victory for Asia at this major Competition before retiring from the Captaincy.

“Ozaki will captain the Asian Team at the Royal Trophy on 14-16 December 2012 at The Empire Hotel & Country Club in the Sultanate of Brunei,” said Lincoln Venancio, the Royal Trophy Co-Managing Director. “This will be his fifth consecutive captaincy at the Royal Trophy. He has clearly earned the position with a historic victory over the Europeans in 2009 and by courageously steering Asia through two remarkably competitive contests in 2010 and 2011,” added Lincoln Venancio.

The Cityneon Sdn Bhd signing ceremony was held at The Empire Hotel and Country Club, with invited guests including Guest of Honor, Dato Paduka Hj Ali Apong, Chairman of The Empire Hotel and Country Club Board of Directors.
