Bangladesh’s premier golfer Siddikur Rahman has been made the brand ambassador of e-commerce company Monarch Mart, owned by Bangladesh cricket team’s Test and T20I captain Shakib Al Hasan.
The two-time Asian tour winner, Siddik, was without a sponsor for a long period after his 10-year contract with Telecom Company Grameenphone ended in 2012.
‘I’m happy that somebody at least dared to sponsor a golfer like me after a long break. I’m grateful to Monarch Mart for this step,’ Siddik told.
As per the deal, Siddik will serve as a brand ambassador for the e-commerce company that will provide financial support to him to smoothly continue his international and domestic campaigns.
Siddik signed the deal a day before he was scheduled to leave for Japan to take part in the 38th Shinhan Donghae Open, to be held at the Koma Country Club from September 8 to 11.
Siddik has a busy schedule ahead of him as he will take part in at least five international competitions outside the country before returning home on October 3 to compete in the Bangabandhu Bangladesh Open in Dhaka from November 22 to 27.
The signing ceremony was attended, among others, by Bangladesh Golf Federation’s joint secretary Colonel (retd) Shahidul Haque, BPGA’s joint secretary Major (retd) Mahmud, Monarch Mart’s COO Zahed Kamal, and head of the commercial, Tanbirul Islam.
