The European Tour announced Slync.io as the new title sponsor of the Dubai Desert Classic, with the iconic event becoming part of the Rolex Series for the first time in 2022.
From 2022, the Slync.io Dubai Desert Classic will be part of the Rolex Series, the European Tour’s premium category of events, with a prize fund of $8million. It will take place from January 27-30.
The Dubai Desert Classic was the European Tour’s first event in the Middle East region in 1989, cementing the Tour’s relationship with Dubai and UAE. That association has developed significantly in the intervening years, including through the introduction in 2009 of the European Tour’s season-long Race to Dubai, which from 2022 will now feature three out of five Rolex Series events in the Middle East, with the back-to-back tournaments in Abu Dhabi and Dubai at the start of the calendar year joined by the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai in November.
In the past, the event has been won by some of the greatest names in golf, including Seve Ballesteros, Ernie Els, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, so attendees can expect to catch some thrilling sporting action as the players take to the course for the European Tour's momentous 50th anniversary season.
Golf fans are in for a treat as the world's best competitors – including those in the top 10 – fly to Dubai for the Slync.io Dubai Desert Classic. Don't miss it.
