Paris | Laver Cup announces two new venues

The organisers of the popular Laver Cup, an international indoor hard court men’s team tennis tournament between Team Europe and Team World, which is currently scheduled to be played at the O2 Arena in London this September (23-25) has announced the venues it will visit over the next two years.

The event, is likened to Golf’s Ryder Cup, is held annually and was started at the instigation of Roger Federer and his management team in 2017.

The event will travel to the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada for September 22-24, 2023 and return to Europe to be contested in the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin, Germany on the 20-22 September 2024.

The three-day Laver Cup competition pits six of the best players from Team Europe, captained by tennis legend Bjorn Borg, against six leading players from Team World, led by the Swede’s professional rival, John McEnroe.

Played on a black indoor court, the Laver Cup debuted in Prague in 2017 and has since rotated destinations between Europe and the World, staged in Chicago in 2018, Geneva in 2019, Boston in 2021 and this year London. To date Team Europe are undefeated having won all previous editions.

The full team line-ups have not been announced for the O2, but it is hoped that Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will play for Team Europe, while Canada’s Felix Auger-Aliassime, American Taylor Fritz and Argentina’s Diego Schwartzman could be named for Team World.
