What are the events like?
Since 2007, Unibet Open has grown from a single event into a tour spanning Europe.

At the same time the emphasis is on enjoying the competition, seeing the sights in the beautiful host locations and enjoying the Unibet Open hospitality in the players’ lounge, at parties and side events.
