January 20th local time, the Singapore Sports Council announced that the ATP250 international men’s tennis match will be held in Singapore Sports City from February 22 to 28.
Singapore’s Minister of Culture, Community and Youth Tang Zhenhui said that the health and safety of all participants and fans will be the most important consideration.
This will be the first time that Singapore will host the Men’s Professional Tennis Association (ATP) Class 250 competition.
This level of events is second to the four Grand Slam Opens, 1000 and 500 in the ATP competition system, but it is still expected to attract some internationally renowned players.
In view of the global coronavirus epidemic, the Singapore Sports Council and the Singapore Tennis Federation promise that they will implement strict safety measures in the competition venues with the support of the
Tourism Board and the Sports City, and the travel arrangements for athletes and competition officials will also be in line with government regulations.
The Singapore Sports Council said that the prevention and control measures against the epidemic will be an important cornerstone for the return of international sports events to Singapore in 2021.
