“Prêt are very proud to continue with our support of the European Solheim Cup Team on their quest for victory in the most prestigious international women’s golf team event.
The 2013 event marks our sixth Solheim Cup and we look forward to many more successful events together.
We wish the European Team the very best of luck in Colorado next August.” stated Håkan Englundh – CEO Swesco Textile AB
Prêt have previously supplied the formal wear for the European Team for five previous editions of The Solheim Cup (2002, 2003, 2005, 2007 & 2009)
“We are absolutely delighted to have renewed our relationship with the team at Prêt. They have dressed the team at previous Solheim Cups so we know we are guaranteed a first class service and quality of clothing. It is very apt that we are working with this Swedish brand especially as our Captain and Vice Captains are Swedish and it is likely we’ll have a number of Scandinavian players on the team. However the style is a very modern and European look that Prêt have designed for the team in Colorado next August” stated Marc Anderman European Solheim Cup Manager.

About The Solheim Cup www.solheimcup.com
The Solheim Cup combines the tradition and prestige of the game of golf with passion for one’s country. This biennial, trans-Atlantic team match-play competition features the best U.S.-born players from the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour and the best European members from the Ladies European Tour (LET).
The Solheim Cup is named in honor of Karsten Solheim, the founder of Karsten Manufacturing Corporation, which makes PING golf equipment. In 1990, the Solheim family, in conjunction with the LPGA and the LET, developed the concept and became the title sponsor for The Solheim Cup, professional golf’s international match-play competition for women. Held every two years, the event has grown into the most prestigious international women’s professional golf team event. The Solheim Cup is the most highly coveted trophy in women’s professional golf team competition; some of the most memorable moments in the sport have happened during one of The Solheim Cups, and berths on the U.S. and European teams are highly sought after by players from both organizations.
The 2013 Solheim Cup will take place Aug. 13-18 at Colorado Golf Club in Parker, Colo. The European Team enters the competition holding the Cup and will need 14 points to retain it, with the U.S. Team needing 14½ points to regain the coveted Waterford Crystal prize. The U.S. team holds an 8-4 lead in the matches, which began in 1990.
In addition to founding sponsor PING, Rolex is also a Global Partner of The Solheim Cup. For more information about The Solheim Cup and updated standings for each team, log on to www.solheimcupeurope.com, www.ladieseuropeantour.com.
