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.

“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.
