WORLD TOUR FORMAT
The 2020 ITTF World Tour consists of six ITTF World Tour events and six ITTF World Tour Platinum events, culminating in the ITTF World Tour Grand Finals – the annual showpiece event, in which players battle it out for the coveted end-of-year trophy. Meanwhile, over US-$ 4 million in prize money is up for grabs across the course of the 13 events. With a limited number of events on offer (four ITTF World Tour Platinum and six ITTF World Tour), competition and interest will be sky high, so cities and countries are encouraged to bid big!
