BOSS climbs new heights as official partner of Matterhorn Cervino Speed Opening

BOSS is pleased to announce that the brand will be the official partner of the new Matterhorn Cervino Speed Opening race taking place between Zermatt, Switzerland, and Cervinia, Italy, at the end of October and start of November. This momentous event set in a majestic natural setting is the first downhill ski race to take place on the famous glacier, marking an innovative winter-sports challenge that reflects the bold, pioneering spirit of the brand.

This sponsorship will provide BOSS with significant visibility via branding on bibs, flags, as well as across the start hut and the racetrack itself. Moreover, one of the key highlights for visitors is that nearly two thirds of the run will be visible from the finish line area, which will feature a BOSS-branded arch at the border crossing. Additional activations include branding throughout the panoramic terrace within the elevated VIP hospitality area that features a bar and a photocall spot leading up to the entrance, throughout which the BOSS logo will be on prominent display. Exclusive guests will receive a one-of-a-kind welcome package containing specially developed BOSS products and accessories.

Large-scale marketing approaches will encapsulate the BOSS brand ethos in the form of a logo-emblazoned helicopter, a hot-air balloon, and a paraglider that will circulate around the peak over the course of the event.

The men's race takes place on the weekend of October 29-30, followed by the women's competition which is scheduled for November 5-6.
