Montréal, August 15, 2023 ‒ The Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal is pleased to welcome the two captains of the 2024 Presidents Cup, Mike Weir and Jim Furyk. The event, organized as part of the International Leaders series, presented by RBC, is taking place September 13, 2023 at Place Ville Marie’s Le Cathcart Restaurants et Biergarten. With Montréal hosting the 15th edition of the Presidents Cup in September 2024, this discussion between the two accomplished golfers will be an opportunity to take a look at the elite professional sport and the significant economic benefits this major championship will bring the city.
“The Chamber is very pleased to host Mike Weir and Jim Furyk,” said Michel Leblanc, President and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal. “The return of the Presidents Cup to the city reinforces our leadership as a host city for major sporting events. With its thousands of spectators, the Cup will offer significant benefits to our economy and incredible international visibility.”
“The PGA Tour is extremely proud that the Presidents Cup, a major international event, is returning to Montréal,” said Ryan Hart, Executive Director of the 2024 Presidents Cup. “The Royal Montreal Golf Club joins the list of those that have hosted this prestigious event several times. This opportunity is largely related to the incredible support from the community in 2007. While we prepare to present the next edition of the Presidents Cup in September 2024, the Ville de Montréal and its business community will again play an essential role in the event’s success. We are very pleased to have the opportunity to partner with the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal to discuss the magnitude this tournament has taken on since 2007 and the visibility it will offer through next fall and beyond.”
