Evinrude Extends FLW Sponsorship


Innovator in Outboard Engine Technology Named
Presenting Sponsor for Five FLW Events in 2019


STURTEVANT, Wis., January 10, 2019 – Evinrude announced today a sponsorship renewal with Fishing League Worldwide (FLW), marking the 18th year of the partnership. The agreement ensures that Evinrude and its premier lineup of outboard engines will be showcased across all FLW tournament circuits and through exclusive digital content, as well as remaining the official outboard sponsor of FLW.

“FLW is extremely pleased to announce our continued partnership with Evinrude,” said Trish Blake, president, FLW Marketing Division. “2019 marks eighteen years of our longstanding relationship which reinforces the commitment both companies have towards one another and the sport of professional bass fishing. Our fans and anglers have shown tremendous loyalty to our sponsors’ products and our tournaments offer the perfect showcase to display the efficient, reliable Evinrude outboards.”

“We are very excited to continue our relationship with FLW,” said Tracy Crocker, president of the BRP Marine Group and senior vice president and general manager of Evinrude. “FLW events offer an ideal platform to demonstrate the industry-leading power, performance and value of our Evinrude E-TEC G2 outboards. We look forward to the results from this year’s tournament circuit and helping FLW, competing anglers and fans have a successful 2019 season.”

Evinrude will be prominent at all FLW-sanctioned tournaments and outdoor expos with an Evinrude booth with featured products for fans to visit and experience. The Sturtevant, Wisconsin-based company will also be seen across the FLW’s various media platforms including FLWFishing.com, “FLW Live”, the FLW social media channels, FLW Bass Fishing magazine, and the Emmy-nominated “FLW” television show. Evinrude is slated to be the presenting sponsor for five events during the 2019 tournament season.

As part of the sponsorship agreement, Evinrude will continue to offer a contingency awards program for boaters competing in the T-H Marine Bass Fishing League (BFL). To participate, an angler must be the owner of a 2016 or newer 90- to 250-hp Evinrude E-TEC or E-TEC G2 outboard engine. All contingency payouts will be administered by FLW, allowing for immediate payouts at each tournament.
