The ASB Classic wishes to clarify it’s position and proposal around hosting the 2021 ASB Classic following some
inaccuracies in reporting last night.
At no point was there any suggestion or request made by tournament organisers to have players and fans in a bubble.
Thorough consideration had been given as to how players would remain isolated from the public at all times while in New
Zealand, and a robust plan was proposed including from when players left their destination of origin, throughout their
time at the tournament, and until they left New Zealand at the end of the event.
Given the volume of questions we have received, we felt necessary to clarify our position.
