Diego “El Peque” Schwartzman, Benoit “The Rebel” Paire and Alexander “The Bublik Enemy” Bublik have secured the remaining three places at the UTS Grand Final (15-17 December) after the postponement of the third event of 2023, scheduled in Seoul, South Korea.
UTS Seoul, initially planned to take place from December 1st to 3rd, 2023, is now due to be held in 2024. The ongoing strikes at Australian ports has put the delivery of key equipment and technology coming into Korea at risk.
We are determined to bring the best experience to our fans which is why we had to take this difficult decision. The ticket holders will be fully reimbursed within seven days, starting from Monday, November 27th. We are grateful for the interest for UTS and we are already working on plans to bring UTS to Seoul in 2024.
Back to the 2023 UTS Tour, Schwartzman, Paire and Bublik join five previously qualified players in what will be an eight-player tournament contested from at the ExCel London. Schwartzman and Paire gain their spots based on their position in the UTS Race, while Bublik is handed a wildcard.
Those already qualified for the London event include Andrey “Rublo” Rublev, who won UTS Frankfurt by Builder.ai; as well as returning players Gael “La Monf” Monfils, Casper “The Iceman” Ruud and Holger “The Viking” Rune, plus debutant Jack “The Power” Draper.
The first stage of UTS in 2024 will happen in Oslo (February 8-11).
