6 Stars Tournament - Singapore Open 2005
Today Singapore Newspaper (Strait Times) revealed that 2005 Singapore Open will be rated as 6 stars will be end of June to early July 2005. It was 5 stars rating until 2004 tournament.
The same news also indicated that entry ticket fees will be reduced (30%) in order to attract more fans.
Hope that 6 stars will attract more world class players and lesser entry fees will entice the more fans.

i sure u read that it is going to become a six star tournament??as far as i could find it seems that AVIVA shall be investing $3m in funds from 2005-2007.the prize money however shall be US$ 170,000 meaning it is still a 5* tournament.

6* or 5*
Yes! It seems contraray to the news from the newspaper and from its official webpage. Nonetheless we will see it within a couple of months later.
Thanks for bringing up the attention.

It will be 5 star event this year, and they are planning to upgrade it to 6 star next year. And AVIVA has signed the sponsorship for the next 3 years from 2005 to 2007

What i found interesting was that the papers said it costs around 700,000 just to run the tournament. Never knew it was that expensive.

if you read this press release here:
i obtained that press release directly from the Singapore Open 2005 people. and it clearly says 170,000 and 5* tournament.

So is it only the Purse that determines the rating of a tournament?
