The ATP World Tour has finalized the sale of its Los Angeles event to Bogota, Colombia. The Los Angeles event was sold to IMLA de Colombia, a Colombian entertainment and sports marketing company. The event will take place at the Centro de Alto Rendimiento in Bogotá, which used to hold an ATP event from 1997-2002.
ATP Executive Chairman and President Brad Drewett commented, “The ATP World Tour is a truly global sports property, and demand for events around the world has never been greater. This latest transfer represents a fantastic opportunity for the ATP World Tour to continue to strengthen its presence in South America, a growing market for men’s professional tennis.
The new tournament owners have a wealth of experience in tennis and we look forward to a successful event in Colombia. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Bob Kramer and his organizing team for their tireless work in running the ATP World Tour 250 event in Los Angeles over the years. Bob’s services to tennis have been hugely appreciated."
