World’s Biggest Table Tennis Tour Opens Bids for 2019
Set to be the biggest and best table tennis World Tour in history; more prize money, better sports presentation and more television distribution than ever before, bids are now open for the most lucrative table tennis tour: the 2019 ITTF World Tour.

It is a fantastic global promotion opportunity for cities and countries to be promoting themselves to a massive global audience.

“The ITTF is inviting all cities and countries around the world to get involved in the biggest tour in table tennis. The world’s best table tennis players, playing in 12 events across the globe provides immense promotional and commercial value to cities. We are looking forward to working with all our hosts and partners to continue the rapid development of the ITTF World Tour”, stated ITTF President Thomas WEIKERT.

The newest table tennis Olympic discipline Mixed Doubles will make its full-time debut on the ITTF World Tour, after a handful events in 2018 as well as new TV innovations and increased money will make the 2019 Tour the best yet.

There are 12 ITTF World Tour events available for bidding in 2019; they are split into two tiers; six ITTF World Tour Platinum events, and six ITTF World Tour events.

With a limited number of events, competition and interest will be high to fill the 12 World Tour stops, so cities and countries are encouraged to bid big!

The six ITTF World Tour Platinum events will be of the very highest level, affording greater prize money. Therefore the result is more international exposure for the hosts as the world’s best players will compete.
