European Tour reveals 2019/2020 schedule

The European Tour has announced its full International Schedule for the 2019/2020 season, which will feature 46 events in 29 different countries including everywhere from Australia to China, Mexico, Oman and South Africa.

2020 will be an especially exciting year with the Ryder Cup making its biennial return to the golfing calendar along with the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. The Ryder Cup will be back on US soil at Whistling Straits in late September while the Olympics will take place from the end of July.

Date changes form the basis of many of the changes to next season’s schedule with the likes of the British Masters, French Open, Andalucia Masters and the Scandinavian Invitation all making moves.

Along with the launch of the 2020 schedule, CEO Keith Pelley also debuted a fresh new look for the European Tour this week, its first major refresh in 10 years.

“Today marks an exciting new chapter in the history and the modern evolution of the European Tour as we unveil our new brand identity along with our new website and app,” said Pelley.

“More than a decade has elapsed since we last embarked on a brand refresh. It is fair to say both golf and the European Tour have changed immensely in the interim, particularly over the past four years as we have strived to lead the transformation of global golf through our creative content, our commitment to innovation and our desire to break new ground.”

“Our new logo is representative of this evolution. It is more modern and more commercially friendly than before, with the ‘T’ more instantly recognisable and more flexible, giving us the ability to create greater brand identity.”

The new website design follows an unsuccessful attempt a couple of years ago to change their online presence. The previous re-design, which was said to have cost over a £1 million, was ultimately scrapped.
