Zenus Bank is thrilled to announce its sponsorship of the 2022 World Match Racing Tour Final from 13-18 December in Sydney, Australia.

The partnership with the longest-running global professional sailing series is Zenus’ first sponsorship. It is part of Zenus’ strategy to grow its profile as a U.S. Retail and Corporate Bank for international citizens and businesses.

“Sponsoring the tour is an exciting opportunity for Zenus. The international sailing community reflects the demographics of our client base. Its commitment to excellence and teamwork also exemplifies the values we hold as a business,” said John Woods, Chief Marketing Officer at Zenus Bank.

The event is being co-hosted with the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia (CYCA), and the winner will be crowned the official Open 2022 Match Racing World Champion. ​

The Tour’s international profile, hosting events across the globe, fits closely with Zenus’ aims to take banking beyond borders, granting individuals and businesses in over 150 countries the ability to maintain a U.S. bank account without citizenship or residency requirements.

“We are delighted to welcome Zenus Bank as a sponsor of the 2022 WMRT Final in Sydney,” added WMRT Executive Director James Pleasance.

“As the longest-running global professional series in the sport, and with 65 teams competing on the Tour this year from all over the world, the World Match Racing Tour provides an ideal platform for a global brand like Zenus Bank to raise its awareness.”   

Ten teams from seven countries will compete for the 2022 world title including knockout stages rounds, quarter-finals and semi-finals with the final scheduled for Sunday 18 December. Racing will be scheduled daily from 1200 AEDST with live results available throughout the week.
