AT&T ends partnership with Tiger Woods

By David Goldman, staff writer


NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Telecom giant AT&T Inc. announced Thursday that it has ended its business relationship with Tiger Woods.

"We are ending our sponsorship agreement with Tiger Woods and wish him well in the future, " said Fletcher Cook, AT&T spokesman, in an e-mailed statement.

Woods had signed a multi-year sponsorship agreement with AT&T (T, Fortune 500) in February, but terms of the deal weren't disclosed. AT&T replaced Buick as the corporate logo on Woods' golf bag when General Motors ended its partnership with Woods earlier this year.

AT&T becomes the second of the golfer's major sponsors to terminate its business relationship with Woods since his Nov. 27 car crash brought to light Tiger's marital infidelity that took the nation by storm. Consultancy Accenture (ACN) also ended its sponsorship of Woods earlier this month.

Procter & Gamble's (PG, Fortune 500) Gillette said it would stop airing commercials that feature Woods for awhile, but it will keep Tiger as a sponsor. Other major sponsors, like Nike (NKE, Fortune 500) and Pepsi's (PEP, Fortune 500) Gatorade have stood by Woods. To top of page
