On October 17th, IFEMA hosted the official presentation of the new Davis Cup format which will be held in Madrid in 2019 and 2020. Both editions are widely supported by the Autonomous Community of Madrid Government and City Hall. Both Angel Garrido, the Autonomous Community President, and Manuela Carmena, Mayor of Madrid, took part in this presentation alongside Gerard Piqué, President of Kosmos, and Kelly Fairweather, Operational Director of the ITF, promoters of this new competition which counts on IFEMA’s sponsorship.
IFEMA will sponsor the Davis Cup’s new format, featuring 18 national teams with the world’s best players.
In 2019, the Caja Mágica arena, a global reference in the tennis world, and three other key stadiums in addition to other indoor and outdoor courts, will host the first final, representing the final touch for the Davis Cup’s new format after 118 years of history. The second edition in 2020, will be held at the WiZink Center, which has ample experience hosting sporting events, and Caja Mágica, both representing good options to enjoy the tournament.
