The Evian Championship will be played in 2021

Due to the situation brought about by the world health crisis, The Evian Championship’s organizing committee announce that the 2020 tournament cannot be held this year.

The ongoing uncertainty concerning the opening of borders poses a major risk to the organization of a competition, to welcome 120 players from around the world. The LPGA and The Evian Championship’s organizing committee have to recognize that the conditions for a safe event that lives up to the expectations of the public, players, organizers and their partners are not in place.

 

 

 

“We have waited for as long as organizational issues allow to make this decision with the LPGA. But unfortunately it was unavoidable in view of the situation with regards to worldwide travel restrictions. Our top priority is of course to ensure everyone stays healthy and safe. All of our teams are very affected by the forced cancellation of our Major, but we must not lose sight of what matters most ”, underlines Franck Riboud, Chairman of The Evian Championship.

 

“We are already committed to the next edition in 2021 to fully rediscover the values and the spirit of a family celebration, the conviviality and emotions that have made our Major unique for more than 25 years. ”

 

 

“I have been incredibly impressed by the entire team at The Evian Championship. They worked so hard in an effort to host this global event despite the obvious challenges,” said LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan. “They know that high-pursed, career-changing events like The Evian are more important than ever, in an LPGA year that has been drastically reduced due to COVID-19. I know this was a tough decision for everyone involved, but it’s one that we had to take given the restrictions we faced.

 

“It is disappointing to miss a major championship but Evian’s strong history of showcasing the best female golfers will continue once again when we return in 2021. We look forward to being back on the mountain in Evian next year and for a long time to come.”
