More than 2.7 million viewers in a hundred countries, a commercial value of more than $8.2 million, a total of 84 broadcasting hours – this is what the WTA Croatia Bol Open looks like in terms of numbers.
The semifinal and final on June 11 and 12, thanks to the HTV broadcast, were taken over by 14 stations, including Fox Sports Asia, Eurosport India, London Live, TV Asahi, Dubai Sport. Thus, once again, the positive image of Bol on Brac toured the world from the Caribbean to Indonesia, India, Singapore, Japan, to Africa, the Middle East, and Great Britain.
It is known that tennis players adore this tournament, not only because of the organization but also because of the ambiance. Playing tennis on the island by the sea, near one of the biggest attractions, Zlatni rat beach, is a special experience. In addition, the Bol tournament traditionally opens the summer tourist season, and this year two important events were held with the theme of combining sports and culture – the opening of the “Jadran Lazić: 50 years of photography” exhibition at the Bol Cultural Center and the opening of the museum-gallery space in the Dominican monastery.
The success of the 15th WTA Croatia Bol Open, led by organizer Feliks Lukas, is even greater given the circumstances in which it was organized – without spectators, with the strictest adherence to epidemiological measures and daily PCR testing at the hotel.
An incredible Croatian event at work, we can’t wait to see what the next WTA Croatia Bol tournament will bring!
