Emirates, the first and only operator of the A380 in the Czech Republic and Partner of the European Tour, will sponsor for the sixth consecutive year the annual D+D REAL Czech Masters, the country’s premiere golfing event of the year, as part of its continued commitment to Czech sport and sports fans worldwide.

To be held 15-18 August, the tournament will once again take place at Albatross Golf Resort in Prague and will proudly host global golf stars such as Padraig Harrington, Ernie Els, Thomas Bjorn and Lee Westwood. At least 10 Czech golfers will again be participating in the tournament, including two amateurs. One of them has been nominated by the Czech Golf Federation.

“Emirates is one of the leading supporters of major golf tournaments across the globe and is the Official Airline of over 24 golf events worldwide.  We are happy that one of these sponsorships takes place in the Czech Republic where golf has gained huge popularity over the last few years,” says Borivoj Trejbal, Country Manager Emirates in the Czech Republic.
