Vancouver, BC – April 13, 2023 – Vancouver and Berlin have been named as host cities for the Laver Cup in 2023 and 2024 respectively, following an intense bidding process. The Laver Cup will now be held at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC from September 22-24, 2023 while the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin will host the Laver Cup from September 20-22, 2024 in Germany.
The Laver Cup is a competition between Europe and the rest of the World. Each team is made up of six players, and led by a team captain, who is a legend in the world of tennis. The captain for 2023 of “Team Europe” is Swedish Bjorn Borg, and the captain of “Team World” is John McEnroe, born in Germany, as a US Citizen. The Laver Cup honors Australian tennis legend Rod Laver, the only person in the world to win two calendar-year Grand Slams.
It is impossible to know who the six people will be, as the top 3 ranked players for Team Europe and top 3 for Team World, based on singles rankings after Wimbledon (July 17, 2023), will receive an automatic invitation to represent their teams at the Laver Cup.
Laver once played an exhibition match with fellow Australian John Newcombe at the Stanley Park tennis courts in 1970. He returned to Vancouver in 1972 to compete in the Rothmans Canadian Open. As a little aside, my grandmother always volunteered at the Stanley Park tennis courts since arriving here in 1972 and most likely met Rod Laver in person!
Played on a black indoor court, the Laver Cup debuted in Prague in 2017 and has since been held in Chicago in 2018, Geneva in 2019, Boston in 2021 and London in 2022, when Team World won the title for the first time!
