The sponsors are a fundamental piece in the gear of professional cycling. Teams base their very existence on the money provided by the names that adorn their jerseys, while companies hope to gain visibility, generate brand image and carve out a niche in the sector. In this article, we review all the sponsors of the World Tour teams for the 2024 season. 

The who's who of the 2024 World Tour sponsors: a guide to what each one does

Although changes in sponsors are common in the professional peloton, which each year undergoes a facelift with some farewells and some welcomes, so too are those that have become etched in the viewers' retinas. Commercial brands have been linked to cycling for a long time and the place has seen firms from beverages, supermarkets, watches, appliances and a long etcetera.

The mutual interest that exists between teams and sponsors is essential for the survival of the sport. The teams become a roving showcase that parades the brands on the roads and televisions of half the world.

Next, we review all the sponsors of the eighteen World Tour 2024 teams.
