One of the most prominent golf events, the European Tour, will be hosted by Cyprus this year. It is probably the largest sporting event ever held on our island with a cash prize of € 2,000,000, top golfers in the world rankings, and a live global broadcast to millions of subscribers.
The world’s best golfers will be at the Aphrodite Hills Resort for 2 consecutive weeks from October 26 to November 9, accompanied by the assistant team and the production team of the European Golf Tournament, which consists of about 500 people, including TV crews and official sports bodies and private health crews.
The Aphrodite Hills PGA National Cyprus golf course, among the best in the world and awarded the best in Europe, will host for the first time 2 consecutive European tournaments. All participants in the tournament who will travel from abroad will follow strict health protocols and for this purpose there will be close cooperation with the Ministry of Health. The 2 tournaments will be held without the presence of spectators.
Organizing tournaments of this magnitude is a very important channel of communication with the global golf community, which has millions of members and loyal followers, on the threshold of the sport’s inclusion in the list of Olympic sports.
In addition, the important golfers who will participate in the tournaments, have hundreds of thousands of followers on social media, thus creating another huge chain of promotion of Cyprus.
The PGA European Tour, produced by ISM (International Sports Management), will be broadcast live to more than 400 million subscribers worldwide, with full TV and news coverage from the Producers of the European Tournament as well as Sky Sports Television Networks.
Aphrodite Hills Resort is now a proud holder of the Covid-Shield certification, which also strengthens the Resort’s strategy for the operation of a protected environment while substantially contributing to increasing the trust of its visitors, residents and staff.
The CEO of Aphrodite Hills Resort, Mr. George Misirlis stated:
“The choice of Aphrodite Hills Resort as a venue for such a global event, we are particularly honored as in addition to the recognition and promotion of our excellent sports facilities, this is a vote of confidence in our country which is going to have its greatest promotion as a sports, tourist, investment but also a health safe destination.
