Licensing

04Licensing

OC Sport works with Rights Holders to franchise or license sporting events in new territories. A recent initiative in this area is an agreement with Autour du Mont-Blanc to speed up and control the global development of the UTMB trail running brand around the world. The first product of this agreement is the GaoLigong by UTMB event being staged in China in 2018.

OC Sport is also the guardian of the Pen Duick and Tabarly brands, an important part of French sailing history. As licensee, the company ensures today's activation of the brand is reflective of the values, DNA and passion associated with Eric Tabarly and his famous yachts. Find out more here.
