The Volvo Car Open has a new lead sponsor, and will be getting a new name before the 2022 event rolls around.

“The tennis tournament, formerly known as the Volvo Car Open, is the largest women’s-only tennis tournament in North America and will celebrate its 50th year April 2-10, 2022 at the newly renovated and modernized Credit One Stadium. A new event name will be revealed at a later date,” the tournament said in a statement.

“Credit One has committed to a multi-year title sponsorship with Charleston Tennis, LLC. The data-driven financial services company based in Las Vegas is one of the fastest growing providers of credit cards in the United States and has existing sponsorships with sports and entertainment organizations including NASCAR®, the Las Vegas Raiders, WWE® and the Vegas Golden Knights.”

A newly renovated main stadium will be unveiled in 2022, named Credit One Stadium.


“Credit One Stadium will expand from 7,500 seats to 11,000 seats and feature 16 fully conditioned permanent suites, all-new concessions, more bathrooms and a 75,000-square-foot Stage House with a partial roof,” the tournament said.

The tournament is the largest women’s only event in North America. Hall of Famer Rosie Casals was the tournament’s first champion, in 1973. The event relocated to its current home in Charleston in 2001.

“The future of live tennis is a bright spot for us, building and planning for what the future will look like for the new Credit One Stadium. After nearly 18 months of navigating postponements and cancelations, we look forward to bringing world-class tennis back to Charleston each April and broadening our reach to bigger and better concerts and special events throughout the year,” said Bob Moran, president of Charleston Tennis, LLC and tournament director.
