LIV Golf, the Saudi Arabia-backed breakaway series, has accelerated its plans to expand following its inaugural season by announcing a 14-tournament league starting in 2023.
The announcement comes ahead of LIV Golf’s third tournament at Bedminster, New Jersey this weekend. There will be eight tournaments played this season and LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman had said in May that 10 events would be held in 2023 before expanding to 14 in 2024.
“LIV Golf’s expanding global platform will add a new dimension to the golf ecosystem as we know it, one that provides an opportunity for players and fans around the world to help maximise our beloved sport’s true potential,” Norman said in a statement.
“Our franchise model will bring new energy and excitement to fans from all corners of the world, establishing a league of teams to connect and grow with.”
