ATP Finals to be held behind closed doors

London, Aug 15 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 8/15/2020 10:23:43 AM IST

The ATP Finals at The O2 in London is due to be played behind closed doors in November. The season-ending tournament will be played between November 15 and 22.

However, in what is its last outing in London before heading to Turin in 2021, there will be no fans inside the area unless current guidance from the government changes.
An ATP statement read, “In line with existing UK government guidance, the ATP currently plans to hold the 2020 Nitto ATP Finals behind closed doors due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.”
“Fans who have already purchased tickets or hospitality to the event through the tournament’s official partners will receive full refunds. However, ATP remains hopeful that later this year fans will be allowed to return into stadia in a socially distanced manner, following a series of pilot events being undertaken in the UK.”
“If this is confirmed ahead of the Nitto ATP Finals, the intention is to reopen ticket sales for the tournament.” The tournament has been staged at The O2 since 2009 but is moving to Italy from 2021-2025 and Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem have already qualified for this year’s event.
