PITTSBURGH — Generic drug maker Mylan and World TeamTennis announced a three-year agreement under which WTT will be renamed Mylan World TeamTennis.
"Mylan chose to partner with WTT due to our organizations' shared commitment to helping people around the world overcome barriers to access," Mylan CEO Heather Bresch said. "For WTT, access means making sure everyone has the opportunity to participate on a team, preparing people — regardless of age, gender or race — to compete both in sports and in life. For Mylan, access is our purpose. We are working every day to set new standards in health care and provide the world's 7 billion people access to high-quality medicine — and breaking down barriers to access along the way."
Mylan said it would serve as the title sponsor of the WTT Pro League's more than 50 matches per season through 2015, and it hopes to extend the reach of WTT to new markets outside the United States.
