As part of the agreement with FLW Outdoors, Evinrude’s sponsorship rights include national TV and magazine advertising opportunities, naming rights for regular-season bass and walleye tournaments and exclusive access to FLW web properties for promotional content.

“Evinrude is one of those rare iconic brands that evoke powerful memories and fierce loyalty from its customers,” FLW Outdoors operations division president Kathy Fennel said in a statement. “We are proud of our long association with the Evinrude brand and, in particular, the last 10 years with BRP. With the tremendous products that BRP brings to market, the next 10 years promises to be even better.”
