Roger Federer’s Laver Cup on Friday announced some advance planning, with the fourth edition of the Europe v World team competition to be staged in  London in September, 2022.

If that scheduling comes to pass, it will mark three years since the event was last played in Geneva last September.

With the 2020 edition this week cancelled months ago due to COVID-19, next year’s iteration is set for Boston.

The London venue will be the O2 arena, decade-long home of the ATP Finals which will stage its last edition this November before moving to Turin in 2021.

Laver officials made the call as tennis struggles to adjust to the current virus reality which forced a halt to Tour play for five months. 

“We’re so excited to be bringing the Laver Cup to London, a city steeped in tennis heritage,” Laver chairman and CEO of Federer’s TEAM8 agency Tony Godsick said.

“Over one amazing weekend we bring together today’s greatest players as teammates, alongside legends and rivals from previous generations to create a truly unique spectacle that has thrilled fans around the globe.”

Federer added in a statement: “London has always held a special place in my heart and it’s going to be incredible to bring the Laver Cup to one of my favourite cities in the world. 
 
“I know the British fans will love the way the Laver Cup brings together the top players in the world while paying respect and recognition to the legends of our game.”
