AT&T Inc. has signed on as the presenting sponsor for the 2008 Tour de Georgia, race organizers announced Wednesday.
As presenting sponsor, AT&T will own exclusive rights for communications services during the race, scheduled April 21-27.
Last year, AT&T was one of the race’s “founding partner” sponsors. Its support included naming rights to the overall leader’s jersey awarded after each stage. That will continue in 2008.
“AT&T is pleased to continue its involvement with the Tour de Georgia this year,” said Sylvia E. Anderson, president of AT&T Georgia.
AT&T will also encourage its employees to volunteer at the tour.
