Running January 16-19 at Abu Dhabi Golf Club, the ninth Championship will see Welshman Jamie Donaldson face three of the world’s top 11 players - McIlroy, Rose and Donald - and the European Tour’s hottest young talent - Golf in Abu Dhabi Ambassador Manassero - when he defends the Falcon Trophy.

Rory McIlroy, the world number three; Justin Rose, the reigning US Open champion and world number five; Luke Donald, the world number 11, and Matteo Manassero, the world number 28, have all staked their claims on the  coveted Falcon Trophy and US$ 2.7million prize fund – the richest purse on the Desert Swing, the European Tour’s trio of early-season, regional events.

The one-stop-shop ‘Golf in Abu Dhabi’ initiative offers a series of three-, five- and seven-night ‘Play, Stay and Watch’ packages for international spectators and tourists to take in the Championship. Those booking seven-night packages receive a complimentary VIP group clinic at the Championship with a world top 30 player. Find out more at www.golfinabudhabi.com

Available via the event’s official website – www.abudhabigolfchampionship.com - and www.ticketmaster.ae, Championship tickets are AED 50 (US $13.3) for a daily pass and AED150 (US$ 40) for a four-day pass, while a 20% ‘early bird’ discount is available on all tickets booked before October 31.
