20 Years club 5: Sponsors and TV money multiplied

Club 5 is the association of the World Cup’s most important organizers and has been in existence for 20 years. Funds from sponsors have tripled and the value TV rights has multiplied twenty-fold.

Club 5+ President Viktor Gertsch has lead a press conference at the Press Office in St.Christina taking stock of twenty years of history. He stated that “Club 5+, as is it known since 1999, is aimed at making the best of the World Cup counting up to 13 members (Gröden, Wengen, Garmisch, Kitzbühel, Val d’Isere, Adelboden, Alta Badia, Cortina, Kranjska Gora, Kvitfjell, Lake Louise, Maribor and Schladming).

Vice President and former and first General Manager of Club 5 in 1987 Edmund Dellago, adds: “Joining forces has helped us triple funds from sponsors and multiply the value of TV rights by twenty times. But we are not satisfied and are working to further improve our partnership with FIS and our member organizations.
