Ryder Cup 2014: Nespresso Official Coffee Supplier

Nespresso has been announced as the Official Coffee Supplier to the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles.

The announcement was made during the Nespresso Trophy final in San Sebastian on October 19, where qualifiers met, chatted and played golf with Jose Maria Olazabal in the Nespresso ambassador’s home town.

“The Ryder Cup is one of the most prestigious and historic golfing events in the world,” said Stephane Detaille, International Sponsoring and Events Manager.

“The matches between the USA and Europe creates worldwide interest way beyond the two competitive continents. No other competition comes close to the emotion, intensity and atmosphere.

“The passion, excellence and winning team spirit that define the Ryder Cup are values which are shared by Nespresso, and, therefore, provide the perfect platform for our partnership.

Nespresso and Olazabal will stage a series of events both prior to the week and during the event itself, bringing unique golf and coffee experiences to the 2014 Ryder Cup.

Speaking during the Nespresso Trophy final in San Sebastian – where Olazabal welcomed golfers from England, Germany, Brazil and Spain – the two-time major champion and 2012 Ryder Cup captain said:

“The Ryder Cup is one of the world’s biggest sporting events, with a proud history and unique team spirit.

“I have been collaborating with Nespresso for many years now and I know that it is a brand that is cleary driven by passion and commitment to excellence, and therefore I see the Ryder Cup partnership in Gleneagles as the perfect match.”

Nespresso will provide an estimated 500,000 Grand Cru coffees in private and public catering areas, team rooms, media centres and Nespresso bars placed around the venue.

The 2014 Ryder Cup takes place at Gleneagles from September 26-28.
