TransylvaniaToday.ro: ATP tournament under preparation in Cluj-NapocaThe central Romania city of Cluj-Napoca might host an ATP men’s tennis tournament starting 2020, local sports publication ProSport has learned.

Cluj-Napoca mayor Emil Boc and Romanian billionaire Ion Tiriac, a former tennis player and the owner of several tournaments in the professional tennis circuit, have already had talks on this subject, according to tennis legend Ilie Nastase, a friend of Tiriac’s, quoted by Romania-Insider.com.


“As far as I understand, there will be a men’s indoor tournament in Cluj-Napoca,” Nastase told ProSport on an optimistic note, quoted by TransylvaniaToday.ro.


The move would come after many of the important sports events Romania hosted in recent years have moved from Bucharest to Transylvania, ProSport commented. This includes Romania’s matches in the Fed Cup women’s team tennis competition and Davis Cup, the similar competition for men teams. Ion Tiriac used to organize a men’s tennis tournament in Bucharest, the BRD Nastase-Tiriac Trophy, but he discontinued it in 2016 after disagreements with Romania’s National Bank (BNR), which owns the main tennis arena in Bucharest.
