Lacoste picks MAS to be its clothing manufacturing partner for all the tennis grand slams for 2021
Sri Lanka’s apparel multinational giant MAS manufactured the polo t-shirts for Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev that they donned at the Australian Open Men’s Final yesterday in Melbourne.
Djokovic beat Medvedev to claim a record-extending ninth Australian Open title on Sunday. The Lankan manufacturer dubbed it as “an all MAS final!”
Both players were sponsored by Lacoste, a leading customer of MAS.
MAS Chairman Mahesh Amalean told the Daily FT that the Innovations Team at MAS Active worked for over a year to design the t-shirts.
“They studied where the majors are played, the season and local conditions, created the material to suit those conditions, and pitched it to Lacoste,” recalled Mahesh.
“The international sports brand was so impressed with the research done and the quality of the product, Lacoste invited MAS to be their clothing manufacturing partner for all the tennis grand slams for 2021, beginning with the Australian Open,” Mahesh added.
