The World Champions Cup today announced that, with the support of Founding Official Partner ISPS Handa, it will be celebrating Black Friday early by offering a “Buy One, Get One” holiday ticket special on all Champions Passes for the inaugural tournament, set to tee off early next month.
Buy One, Get One tickets are available only for a limited time while supplies last, at www.WorldChampionsCup.com.
The inaugural World Champions Cup is set to make its debut December 7-10, 2023, at The Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, Florida. Champions Passes, which allow access to the grounds and the grandstand, start at $40 per day, with prices increasing the week before the tournament. Kids 15 and under receive complimentary admission with a ticketed adult (up to four kids per ticketed adult).
“We appreciate the support of ISPS Handa in helping bring this special holiday offer to our community,” said Jason Langwell, Executive Director of the World Champions Cup. “With three incredible teams made up of some of the most accomplished players in golf, the inaugural World Champions Cup is sure to be an amazing experience for fans. We encourage people to act fast and take advantage of this offer before it’s gone.”
Each of the three teams competing in the World Champions Cup consists of six players, including a playing captain, and all are active PGA TOUR Champions members. World Golf Hall of Famer Ernie Els, 2011 Open champion Darren Clarke and 2003 U.S. Open champion Jim Furyk will each serve as playing captains in the first playing of the World Champions Cup. Jacobsen, a seven-time PGA TOUR winner and popular golf commentator, is the Chairman of the event.
Team International includes Els, Vijay Singh, Retief Goosen, Steven Alker, Stephen Ames and K.J. Choi. Team Europe’s roster features Clarke, Bernhard Langer, Colin Montgomerie, Miguel Angel Jiménez, Robert Karlsson and Alex Čejka. Team USA consists of Furyk, Steve Stricker, David Toms, Jerry Kelly, Justin Leonard and Brett Quigley.
Inspired by the passion and tradition of the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup, the World Champions Cup is officially sanctioned by PGA TOUR Champions and is set to air on ABC and ESPN. The World Champions Cup will feature Team International, Team Europe and Team USA squaring off over three days of competition that will renew some of the game’s most storied rivalries as the teams battle for international pride and global bragging rights.
The World Champions Cup is an annual three-team, three-day competition that will be contested across nine-hole matches featuring team formats and singles play, with points being earned for each hole won in each of the event’s 24 matches. The team with the highest point total across all matches will be crowned the champion.
The Concession Golf Club was named the Best New Private Course in America by Golf Digest in 2006. The seed of what would become The Concession Golf Club was planted in 1969, with Jack Nicklaus’ famous gesture of conceding the final putt in the Ryder Cup to Tony Jacklin, clinching the first tie in the competition’s history. Decades later, the two golf legends paired up to design and create The Concession Golf Club — a championship, privately-owned golf facility with no houses lining the course. The course has hosted the PGA TOUR’s 2021 World Golf Championships-Workday Championship at The Concession, the 2015 Men’s and Women’s NCAA Division I championships and the biennial Concession Cup.
ABC and ESPN will serve as the exclusive television homes of the World Champions Cup. Coverage will air Thursday, December 7 and Friday, December 8, as well as Sunday, December 10. The event will also feature a unique pro-am on Saturday, December 9.
