Godrej Eon signs 3-year title sponsorship deal with Tour de India

MUMBAI: Mumbai-based sports management company ID Sports has roped in consumer electronics brand Godrej Eon as the title sponsor for its cycling event Tour de India (TDI) 2012 as part of its green drive to encourage people to take up cycling.

The three-year strategic partnership facilitated by Total Sports Asia will see the iconic consumer durables brand Godrej Eon as the Title Sponsor for TDI 2012 for races that will be hosted in Delhi, Mumbai and Srinagar on 4, 7 and 11 November respectively.

As part of the association, the cycling race will now be branded Godrej Eon Tour De India-2012. The event is held under the aegis of Cycling Federation of India and International Cycling Union (UCI).

The funds raised in the proceedings would be directed towards One Watt Project- an initiative to spread the message of energy conservation.
