～ Offering ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP @ Sherwood official pin flags and other limited edition merchandise for this year's tournament ～
ZOZO Inc. (headquartered in Chiba City, Chiba Prefecture, Representative Director, President & CEO: Kotaro Sawada), which operates the online fashion retail website “ZOZOTOWN” (https://zozo.jp/) will be selling official tournament merchandise for the PGA TOUR “ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP @ SHERWOOD” on ZOZOTOWN starting today. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to support the anti-COVID-19 measures, and for the further development of the golf industry.
This year's second annual ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP will be held at a different venue, the Sherwood Country Club in California, USA – a location that will allow us to prepare for the impact of the coronavirus outbreak and the various preventative measures being taken by the government. (*1)
By hosting our tournament this year, we hope to spread the positive power of the sport of golf, which is loved by people of all ages, genders, and nationalities. Moreover, we will launch a charity initiative to help support countermeasures against the coronavirus affecting Japan and the rest of the world.
As a first step in this initiative, official tournament merchandise will be available for purchase on ZOZOTOWN starting today. A total of 10 items, including popular golf apparel such as polo shirts, pin flags and other official merchandise will be available as limited-edition items for this year.
During tournament week, a portion of the sales on ZOZOGOLF, a zone specializing in golf merchandise that features a variety of popular golf brand apparel, will be donated to medical institutions to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus among other initiatives, and to help further the development of the golf industry. Other charitable activities include a raffle to purchase a variety of autographed goods and player-used tournament items, which the proceeds will be donated back to charity.
Furthermore, through an organization called “Sherwood Cares”, we look forward to contributing something back to the people of California and the local Sherwood community who has graciously worked with us in hosting our tournament at Sherwood Country Club.
Although we are not able to host this year’s ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP in Japan, Tiger Woods, one of the world’s greatest professional athletes has announced his participation on September 24th (Japan), which makes us even more excited about this year’s “ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP @ SHERWOOD”. (*2)
We believe in the positive power of the sport of golf, which is loved by people of all ages, genders, and nationalities. We will work towards realizing our corporate philosophy, “Make the world a better place, bring smiles to the world - Be unique, be equal.”
