The State Government through Tourism WA is a major and founding sponsor of the Mastercard Hopman Cup tennis tournament.

The State Government has sponsored the Mastercard Hopman Cup since its inception in 1989.  The current sponsorship deal has secured the tournament in WA until 2022.

The  tournament has welcomed some of the world's biggest tennis superstars over its time, including one of the world's greatest ever tennis players, Roger Federer, who is once again returning to Perth to compete at the 30th Hopman Cup in January 2018.

The 18-time Grand Slam champion will represent Switzerland for the fourth time at the mixed teams’ tournament, with his most recent involvement in 2017 making it one of the most successful events in the tournament’s history, attracting a total of 103,167 fans to Perth Arena. 

Events are vital to tourism, as they attract visitors who inject millions into the economy, add vibrancy to the city and promote the State nationally and internationally through valuable media exposure. 

The Mastercard Hopman Cup is a perfect example of an event that provides significant benefits to the State. For example the 2017 event generated a media value of around $68.4 million in international and domestic markets, a significant increase from the year before, providing exposure of Perth’s significant transformation to millions of potential visitors around the world.
