TORONTO — Tennis Canada has renamed its annual showcase tennis event after announcing a 10-year partnership with a bank.
The Rogers Cup, a Masters 1000 stop on the ATP Tour that runs concurrently with a WTA 1000 event on the WTA Tour, will now be known as the National Bank Open.
Financial terms of the partnership weren't released.
The men's tournament is scheduled for Aug. 7-15 in Toronto. The women's tournament is set for Aug. 6-15 in Montreal.
Rogers will continue as a presenting sponsor, the federation said Tuesday on a video conference call.
National Bank had been a presenting sponsor of the Montreal event since 2005 and the Toronto event since 2010.
