Zurich has a special relationship with New Orleans, the host city for the Zurich Classic. The insurer has stood by the city and its people for more than a decade, with the Zurich Classic never missing a year since it became title sponsor just months before Hurricane Katrina hit and was the first major sporting event to return to the city after Katrina. The 2019 Zurich Classic marks Zurich’s 15th year as proud sponsor of the Zurich Classic. Zurich announced a 7-year contract extension in 2018 that will continue its sponsorship through 2026.
Since Zurich became title sponsor, the Tournament has generated approximately $500 million in economic activity for the New Orleans community. In that time – together with the Fore!Kids Foundation – Zurich Insurance have raised more than $20 million for charitable organizations, supporting 200,000 children in need annually. Zurich’s commitment to New Orleans exemplifies how it collaborates with others to create resilience and help the communities it serves.
