The European Tour has added the AVIV Dubai Championship to its schedule for 2021 to form an end-of-season double-header in Dubai with the DP World Tour Championship.

The €1.3 million AVIV Dubai Championship will be played on the Fire course at Jumeirah Golf Estates from November 11th to 14th, preceding the final Rolex Series event of 2021, the DP World Tour Championship which will bring the curtain down on this year’s Race to Dubai on the neighbouring Earth course.

It was introduced last December, when it was known as the Golf in Dubai Championship presented by DP World, as part of the revamped 2020 European Tour schedule.

This year's tournament replaces the cancelled Nedbank Golf Challenge Hosted by Gary Player in South Africa, which will now return for its 40th anniversary in 2022.

It forms a new-look end to the European Tour’s 2021 season following the recent additions of the Mallorca Golf Open and Portugal Masters.

European Tour’s Chief Executive, Keith Pelley said: "Last year’s tournament on the Fire course, created to complete our 2020 schedule, was a great success and we are delighted to bring the AVIV Dubai Championship to our schedule as the final piece in our jigsaw this season.

"It means we will have two strong ‘Swings’ to end our 2021 campaign – the Iberian Swing in Spain and Portugal and now this Dubai double-header at Jumeirah Golf Estates."
