These sponsorship deals are split into four categories of partners, dropping down in level of interest from main partner to official suppliers.
Wimbledon: In November 2022, Barclays replaced rival HSBC as the official banking partner of the slam. HSBC has held these rights for the previous 15 seasons at Wimbledon and so this deal marks the start of a new era.
