2024, Premier Padel’s first year as a main circuit
Since its launch in 2022, Premier Padel has become one of the fastest growing circuits in the world sport.
More than 500 men’s players from around the world have competed in Premier Padel tournaments during its first season, playing at some of the most iconic venues in the sport’s history, such as the Stade Roland-Garros in Paris.
In parallel, more than 110 professional female players joined Premier Padel in March 2023. In addition, Premier Padel has secured multi-year broadcast deals to reach more than 180 countries and over 150 million households, while the first two seasons of Premier Padel attracted almost 25 million views on YouTube.
In August 2023, Qatar Sports Investments (QSI), together with the International Padel Federation (FIP), and with the backing of the Professional Padel Association (PPA) and the International Padel Players Association (IPPA), announced that a historic agreement had been reached with Damm, owner of Setpoint Events, organiser of the World Padel Tour (WPT), for QSI to acquire WPT with the aim of creating a single world professional padel circuit – called Premier Padel – from 2024 and under the governance of the FIP. The 2024 Premier Padel calendar will host the first season of the new unified circuit.
Statements by Premier Padel, the FIP and the Players’ Associations
Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, Chairman of Premier Padel, said: “We are delighted to announce our much- anticipated 2024 calendar. This year will be the first season of the newly unified Premier Padel tour, which will take the sport to the next level – both for the players, who we place at the heart of our tour, but also the whole padel ecosystem. We are looking forward to seeing Premier Padel excite and inspire fans in our fantastic established locations, but also emerging markets around the world as we look to grow the sport in every way. 2024 will be a landmark year for Premier Padel as we proudly continue to build one of the most exciting tours in global sport.”
Luigi Carraro, President of the International Padel Federation, said: “The 2024 season marks the beginning of a new era for Premier Padel as the tour expands to 25 tournaments held across 5 continents – and truly becomes padel’s first global professional tour. Together with our National Federations, we are pleased to see the sport grow audiences and participants all around the world, as the tour visits new cities and countries inspiring the next generation. At the International Padel Federation, we are proud to be creating an amazing legacy and building a fantastic future for our sport, with the players at the centre of shaping the tour. We look forward to 2024 being the most exciting season yet, for Premier Padel and also the sport of padel.”
The Board of Directors of the Professional Padel Association (PPA), said: “The players are excited to play in the newly unified and expanded Premier Padel tour. We are looking forward to returning to cities where we have strong support and large fanbases, as well as visiting new locations, as we continue to work with Premier Padel to elevate padel to greater international prominence.”
The Board of the International Padel Players Association (IPPA), said: “After a successful first season as part of the Premier Padel tour, the IPPA, the female players’ association, is looking forward to a greater second season that is expanding to much more tournaments around the globe. We are delighted with Premier Padel’s commitment to building a successful sporting event for all and look forward to strengthening our relationship to continue contributing to the growth of padel, also for women, worldwide. We are all excited about the 2024 season.”
