An impressive anniversary will be celebrated in Cologne in June 2018: the 30th BMW International Open. No other tournament on the European Tour has been held continuously for three decades under the same tournament name and with organiser BMW.
The two European players who dominated the 2017 season, Spaniard Sergio Garcia and England’s Tommy Fleetwood, have already confirmed that they will be there. Tickets for the highlight of the golfing year in Germany make the perfect Christmas present for golf fans, and are available with a Christmas discount now.
“Next year, we will celebrate the 30th anniversary of a unique tournament,” said Masters champion Garcia. “I want to congratulate BMW on 30 amazing years of partnership in golf and thank the company so much for everything it has done.
“I have always enjoyed playing at the BMW International Open and am already really looking forward to the 30th staging of this event. I hope to see you at another fantastic tournament in June.”
One week ago, Fleetwood claimed the greatest triumph of his young career, when he clinched the Race to Dubai title on the final afternoon of the season.
“With its great atmosphere and top-class organisation, the BMW International Open is one of the highlights of our season,” he said. “The 30th anniversary tournament is sure to be a fantastic week and I am looking forward to celebrating this milestone with the golf fans in Germany.”
