Sydney has secured the finals matches of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) Cup to launch the tennis season from 2020.
The NSW Government had won the hosting rights for the ATP Cup finals matches until 2022 and would also host group matches alongside other Australian cities.
“This is another coup for our State, not only for athletes and sporting fans but the wider NSW community who are set to win from the estimated $36.5 million injection into our local economy,” said Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall.
Following the recent announcement that Ken Rosewall Arena at the Olympic Tennis Centre will receive a $50.5 million upgrade, Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres said the NSW Government is committed to working with Tennis Australia and Tennis NSW to deliver an outstanding event.
“The NSW Government has made a commitment to bid for 10 World Cups for the next decade and we’re well on our way to reaching our goal only six months after embarking on our ambitious target,” Ayres said.
“Tennis continues to form the cornerstone of our country’s sporting landscape, capturing the hearts and minds of sport fans each summer and attracting international spectators to our locally-hosted matches.
“I look forward to welcoming tennis greats to our State for the ATP Cup group and finals matches that will no doubt provide a sensational showcase of sport and opportunity for NSW to shine on the world stage.”
