The BMW International Open scheduled to take place between 24th and 28th June 2020 has been cancelled due to the German government’s ban on large events until 31st August. Tournament organiser BMW and the European Tour decided not to hold the tournament this year after close consultation. Both partners regret the cancellation of the iconic tournament, but agree that the health of everyone involved has paramount priority. Tickets purchased in advance will be reimbursed.
“It was by no means an easy decision to cancel the BMW International Open for the first time in 31 years of the tournament’s history, particularly in view of the golf fans in Germany and our tournament partners,” said Sebastian Mackensen, Senior Vice President BMW Group Germany and Tournament President of the BMW International Open, “but the health and well-being of visitors, players, media representatives, partners, organisers and volunteers has top priority. We would like to thank the European Tour for the cooperative partnership based on trust, also in this situation. Many thanks go to our partners and service providers as well, for their support to date in preparing the BMW International Open 2020.”
