The Opening Night Ceremony will kick-off the 2022 edition of the tournament, celebrating its new title partner, National Bank, and a return to full capacity for fans. Tournament organizer, Tennis Canada, has collaborated with multidisciplinary global creative agency Sid Lee to highlight the new look and feel of the tournament. Building on the Feel Tennis marketing campaign launched by Tennis Canada earlier this year, audiences in both Toronto and Montreal will have the opportunity to engage with the performance and feel tennis.
“The 2022 tournament is a big event for the city of Montreal, and for Canada. We aim to give our fans a special Opening Night with a ceremony that will be felt by all the tennis fans watching,” said Eugène Lapierre, Montreal National Bank Open Tournament Director. “We are very grateful to our staff, volunteers and our new title partner National Bank for the support they’ve given us in getting this tournament back to what we are used to with full capacity and a chance to host the ATP Tour in Montreal for the first time since 2019!”
