A major change is coming to the ATP Finals in a couple of years.

ATP executive chairman Chris Kermode confirmed Wednesday that the annual event will move from the 02 Arena in London, England to Pala Alpitour stadium in Turin, Italy from 2021 to 2025.

“Our congratulations to Turin on putting together such a comprehensive and impressive bid. Italy provides us with one of the strongest and most established tennis markets in Europe and has a proven track record for hosting world class tennis events with the Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome, as well as the Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan.” said Kermode.

“We’re delighted to expand on our successful partnership with the FIT and Sport e Salute SpA and we look forward to bringing the ATP’s flagship season-ending event to tennis’s growing fanbase in Italy for the first time.”

Turin reportedly beat out other major cities on the shortlist including Manchester, England, Singapore and Tokyo, Japan.

London had been the host of the season-ending tournament since 2009.
