The ATP World Tour revealed that the 250 level clay-court tournament that was traditionally held in Vina del Mar, Chile, will be relocated to Quito, Ecuador, in 2015.
The event will be operated by IMLA de Colombia, which also runs the ATP World Tour 250 event in Bogota.
“It’s been a very exiting year for me and our company IMLA to have the opportunity to be part of the new ATP tournament in Quito, Ecuador,” said Manuel Mate, president of IMLA de Colombia. “Being from Colombia, Ecuador is our closest neighbor and one with great economic growth, incredible tourist development and an enormous tennis fan base.
“We know this partnership of two countries with two ATP World Tour events and passionate tennis promoters as Fabricio Valdivieso will make tennis grow in our continent. Players and fans alike will love the ATP 250 in Ecuador. Don’t miss it in February 2015.”
The tournament takes place between 2-8 February, 2015.
