Grand Hotel Brioni Pula, A Radisson Collection Hotel is the proud host of the captains, players and management of the Legends Team Cup ATP Championship, which was held this year for the first time in the world, starting in Pula, in the Pula Arena, from the 1st to the 3rd August 2022

The entire format of the Legends Team Cup is based on excellent tennis played in an exclusive but somewhat unusual setting outside the confines of a classic tennis stadium.

Marten Hedlund, president and CEO of the Top 12 group and founder of the Legends Team Cup – ATP Champions Tour, said about his impressions and why he chose Pula as the first point: 

"The players are professional tennis players who have recently finished competing at the ATP, but are still in great shape and want to continue competing. This format enables them to do just that. After a conversation with Mr. Ivošević several years ago, the idea was born in order for the Pula Arena to satisfy everything we are looking for from such a format. Last year I visited Pula and the Pula Arena, and then I was convinced that this is what we are looking for. From the very beginning, for us, apart from the location of the game itself, are extremely important and all accompanying facilities, and above all accommodation." explains Hedlund.

He said about the Grand Hotel Brioni, A Radisson Collection Hotel from the Arena Hospitality Group portfolio where they stayed during their stay in Pula: "We are extremely satisfied with this hotel, the level of service is at the highest level. The entire staff is very cooperative and try to accommodate our requests. I believe that the key to long-term success lies precisely in the quality of service, in the sincere and genuine hospitality that guests experience when they enter the hotel. I've had the opportunity to travel the world, but you don't often find this combination of privacy and exclusivity, even in the most luxurious hotels. It is a reflection of good management." adds Hedlund.

Tennis legend and captain of Team Cash, Pat Cash, winner of 5 Grand Slam tournaments, once no. 4 in the world, here in the role of captain of the team with the players Tsonga, Baghdatis, Berdych, Nalbandian, Robredo was in Dalmatia with his family last year, and his great desire was to visit Istria, which came true with this sports project, and he commented: "The hotel itself and the environment in which it is located is sensational. It is so close to the sea, it exudes a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere, the view of the open sea is wonderful. I am currently training with a professional WTA tennis player here in Pula, I was pleasantly surprised by the gym and yoga room and the swimming pool where we really managed to do quality training. Also, as soon as you leave the hotel, you enter an excellent circular jogging path in the very vicinity surrounded by the sea."

Due to its excellent geographical position and climate, southern Istria and AHG accommodation facilities are an ideal European destination for sports events, and AHG has enough of its own sports infrastructure to make it an ideal sports destination with its facilities.
