The competition was held in Perth for three decades.

The Hopman Cup team tournament, named after Australian great Harry Hopman, will move to Europe with the next edition played in Nice, France from July 19-23, the International Tennis Federation (ITF) said on Tuesday.

The competition, which began in 1989, was held in Perth for three decades.

The Nice Lawn Tennis Club will host the event up to 2027 as part of a five-year contract between the ITF and Barcelona-based company Tennium, which operate multiple ATP and WTA tournaments.

“The Hopman Cup, as a unique mixed-team event, has always enjoyed a special place in the hearts of tennis fans, and I am sure that spectators in Nice will relish the chance to see some of the world’s top men and women players on the same court,” ITF President David Haggerty said.

The teams will have one male and one female player, with ties featuring a men’s singles match, a women’s singles and a mixed doubles.

Six nations will compete in the 2023 and 2024 editions, but the ITF confirmed that the competition will expand to eight teams from 2025 onwards. France will take part each year as hosts.

Roger Federer led Switzerland to the title against Germany in the last edition of the tournament in 2019.
