Tennium becomes the official host of the ATP 500 in Hamburg from 2024 onwards

The German Tennis Federation (DTB) has awarded the hosting rights for the ATP tournament at Rothenbaum to Tennium. From 2024, the Global Tennis Platform will host the men’s tournament for at least five years. The decision was made after a months-long selection process in which offers from several interested parties were examined.

Tennium is an international sports agency with headquarters in Barcelona and presence in Argentina, Belgium, and the United States, the company is led by Belgian, Kristoff Puelinckx and former French tennis player, Sebastien Grosjean.

They are currently the organizers of tournaments such as the ATP500 in Barcelona and the ATP250 tournaments in Antwerp (Belgium) and Buenos Aires (Argentina). As well as various WTA tournaments around South America and Spain.

“It is a great honor for us that the DTB entrusts us with the organization of Germany’s most traditional tennis tournament,” said CEO and founder of Tennium, Kristoff Puelinckx. “After Barcelona, Antwerp and Buenos Aires, we are now very pleased to be able to bring our experience to Hamburg. Our aim is to work with the DTB to take the tournament forward so that it remains one of the most important dates on the tennis calendar in the future.”

The basis for the decision in favor of Tennium were, in addition to the economic offer, the experience in organizing large tennis events, the close cooperation of the agency with players as well as the innovative ideas for the further development of the tournament at the Hamburg location.

“Our task as an association is to find the best possible and forward-looking solution for the tournament at Rothenbaum. We are convinced that with our new partner, we will lead the event into a successful future. Tennium combines extensive experience in tennis, economic expertise and a worldwide network. They have proven that they can give tennis new, exciting impulses,” said DTB President Dietloff von Arnim.
