The BMW International Open will take place at Golfclub München Eichenried from 23rd to 27th June. Whether spectators will be permitted, and if so how many, will be decided at a later date in close consultation with authorities and the European Tour. Tickets will not go on sale until this decision has been taken.
At the present time, it is not possible to predict how the guidelines for major events will develop by the end of 2021, with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic. Tournament organiser BMW will work with the relevant authorities and the European Tour to develop definite concepts regarding what form the tournament may take. The health and safety of all involved continues to take top priority in any decisions, particularly regarding spectators.
The announcement of the European Tour calendar also confirms the dates for the 2021 BMW PGA Championship – one of four tournaments of the prestigious Rolex Series – at the Wentworth Club, near London. The European Tour’s flagship event will take place from 8th to 12th September and will be the final tournament, at which qualifying points for the European Ryder Cup team are still up for grabs. The unique match between the best golfers from the USA and Europe will take place at the spectacular Whistling Straits links course in Kohler (US state of Wisconsin) from 21st to 26th September and sees BMW in the role of Worldwide Partner of the Ryder Cup for the first time.
