The ATP Tour announced that several of its 250 level events will be upgraded starting in 2025. That means that several other 250 tournaments will end next year.

The goal by the tour is to elevate and upgrade fan and player benefits as part of its overall OneVision strategy.

The 250-level events that will upgrade to the 500 level include the Dallas Open, the Qatar ExxonMobil Open in Doha, and the BMW Open in Munich.

As a result of these changes, ATP 250 events in Atlanta, Lyon, and Newport will be retired from 2025.

“OneVision is all about raising the bar for tennis, and unlocking new investment in the game. We’re thrilled to have our Dallas, Doha, and Munich event step up to ATP 500 status - delivering improved standards for players and most importantly and enhanced product for our fans,” said Andrea Gaudenzi, ATP Chairman in a statement.

The upgrades will expanse the ATP 500 category from 13 to 16 tournaments across the season. The changes also coincide with enhancements to the ATP Masters 1000 category with seven of the nine tournaments to be held as marquee 12-day events from 2025.

The full 2025 ATP Tour calendar will be announced in the coming months.
