ROTTERDAM (Neth.) - On March 19, the Foundation Rotterdam Baseball, which is the organisor of the Citrix World Port Tournament, signed a working agreement with Foundation GIO during a meeting for sponsors and relations. WPT-chairman Gerard Vaandrager and (former national team soccer player) Giovanni van Bronckhorst, chairman of his own foundation GIO, signed the papers. With this, the Citrix World Port Tournament wants to contribute to the work of S.V. GIO, which helps children, who have a backwardness at school with their development through sports.

During the meeting, the sponsor-agreements with mainsponsor Citrix (whose name is added to the tournament-name), as well as sponsors Rotterdam Topsport, Verkerk Groep and Hagero were signed.

Paddy Roomer, the commercial director of the tournament, announced that the commerce of the event is going well and that a Baseball Business Board surrounding the WPT has been formed.

The publicity of the accomplishments of the Dutch Baseball Team during the recent World Baseball Classic also influenced the WPT, as hundred tickets were sold after the start of the electronic ticket sales.

This years World Port Tournament will be held June 30 through July 7 in the Neptunus Familiestadion in Rotterdam.
