ANZ is delighted to be an Associate Sponsor of the Australian Open Tennis — the Grand Slam of the Asia Pacific region.
We are pleased to be supporting one of the world's great sporting events and the only tennis Grand Slam tournament held in the southern hemisphere, an event that offers so many opportunities for our staff and customers to participate.
Our sponsorship of the tournament which began in 2010 is a sign of our continued commitment to the Australian market, as well as being aligned with our goal to be a super regional bank and grow our presence in the Asia Pacific region.
Both ANZ and the Australian Open have a long history and a shared heritage — with both being born in Australia but growing strong ties in the Asia Pacific region. The popularity of tennis is also growing in Asia, which makes this a great way for us to connect with our key target markets.
ANZ invites Tournament goers to visit ANZ Advantage Arena, located on Grand Slam Oval®. ANZ Advantage Arena will allow patrons to experience a brand new interactive activity and receive unique giveaways including the popular ANZ LED fans and new ANZ globe moneyboxes.
In 2014, Day 4 of the Tournament (16 January 2014) will become ANZ Advantage Day. ANZ Advantage Day reflects our commitment to supporting our customers through key initiatives such as simplifying our products and providing additional mobile banking options to make banking easier for our customers, our people and the community. ANZ Advantage Day will provide additional activities and special offers for ANZ customers and patrons on-site. Look out for the ANZ Support Crew with Kevin the ATM on Day 4.
ANZ is also the Official Bank of the Australian Open. For more on ANZ's sponsorship and activities, as well as great tennis content and social media, visit anz.com/tennis.
ANZ is among the top 30 banks in the world (by market capitalisation) and has the largest presence in Asia of any Australian bank. Our history in Australia dates back 175 years.
ANZ's aspiration is to be a super regional bank with a leadership position in Australia. We are committed to building lasting partnerships with our customers, shareholders and communities throughout Australia, New Zealand and 32 key markets globally.

ANZ's approach is to make banking more simple for our customers by making the investments needed to extend our point of difference with a focus on the things customers tell us matter to them: leading levels of customer satisfaction, access to convenient branches and ATMs, simple products, straight forward fees and engaged staff.
