ITF sells junior rankings sponsorship

Doesn’t it feel as though the ITF is making every little bit of its business available for a price?

The latest is the adding of IMG Academy as the presenting sponsor of its ITF Junior World rankings.


Given the IMG Academy’s main goal is to produce junior players, it’s almost like having the “NCAA College Football Championships – presented by the SEC”. 

While it’s good exposure for the Academy, the optics – given the new rules concerning juniors and the new Transition Tour – make the optics a little dodgy, to say the least.
