Commenting on the procurement process, TSC Director Angus Buchanan said: 'We are incredibly proud of what The Sports Consultancy has achieved in delivering the largest ever competitive tender in sport. From over 80 original bidders, we are delighted with the quality of the final host cities and the significantly enhanced rights fees and infrastructure commitments we have achieved for Volvo Ocean Race even in this tough economic environment.'

Knut Frostad, Volvo Ocean Race CEO, added: 'I am delighted with the results that The Sports Consultancy has achieved over the last 12 months. Its methodology and implementation has been first class ensuring that the Volvo Ocean Race enhances its global reputation as the world’s most high profile off shore yachting event.'
