The International Sports Promotion Society (ISPS) will be the sole title sponsor for ISPS Handa New Zealand Open, to be held in March, part of the movement in line with an open-ended partnership the ISPS entered into with the PGA Tour of Australasia this summer.

BMW was the joint sponsor for the BMW ISPS Handa New Zealand Open this year, but the tournament's title will change from next year. It will be held in The Hills, Millbrook Resort, Queenstown, from March 9 to 12.

"By holding a unique tournament in which Japanese and New Zealand golfers compete, we can have a positive influence in not only sports, but also on the economies of the two countries," said ISPS Chairman Haruhisa Handa at Shinrinkoen Golf Club in Yorii, Saitama Prefecture, after an awards ceremony for the ISPS Handa World Blind Golf Championships that was held there.
