Sir Nick Faldo’s junior series has announced a new partnership with Ligas Golf which will see the Faldo Series host events in Spain for the first time.
Agreeing a three-year partnership, the Faldo Series and Ligas Golf collaboration will host a total of 14 qualifying events across Spain this summer, with ambitious plans to expand the schedules in the following years.
The partnership brings two passionate brands together, as they look to align on a shared commitment to growing the game by providing unique opportunities for juniors to grow, develop and compete through golf.
The announcement of the new partnership fosters further excitement for the upcoming Faldo Series season, as it celebrates 25 years of growing the game and looks to build on its most popular Europe Series ever in 2020.
At each event players will be able to opt in to play simultaneously in both the Ligas Golf stableford and the Faldo Series’ scratch open competitions. Winners in the qualifying Faldo Series competition will earn an invite to September’s Faldo Series Spain Championship, where players will compete for a place in the Faldo Series Europe Grand Final at Al Ain Equestrian, Shooting & Golf Club, Abu Dhabi this November.
Looking ahead to the newly established fiesta of junior golf this summer, Matthew Faldo, Director of the Faldo Series, said: “We are delighted to team up with Ligas Golf and officially bring the Faldo Series to Spain. This partnership presents a fantastic opportunity to provide high quality competition to enthusiastic juniors from across Spain and we look forward to an exciting journey ahead.”
“This year marks a real milestone for the Series, and today’s announcement with the team at Ligas Golf is a fitting celebration of the continuous commitment to growing the game that has inspired us all over the years to champion unique experiences for tomorrow’s champions.”
Celebrating the new partnership with the Series, Director of Ligas Golf, Manuel Dutor, commented: “It’s a huge dream because they have valued what we have done in the past 6 years. They have seen in us the will to fight for golf and to try and make golf reach every last corner of the Spanish territory so that all can understand what golf can give them.”
“The whole team of Ligas Golf are super excited, super enthusiastic, to be able to carry forward this union that we hope, and dream will not only be for three years but many, many more.”
The first events of the partnership will tee off on July 11 across: Almería, País Vasco and Valencia. To view the full schedule of the Faldo Series and Ligas Golf events this summer, visit www.LigasGolf.es.
