EPT introducing Tour Pass for season 2023
EPT Tour Pass program will be launched in 2023 for professional athletes on the European Pro Tour. The program aims to enhance player benefits, promote professionalism and player experience, and introduce elements that will be expanded and developed in future years.

Qualified players will receive full details on Tour Passes for 2023 via email that they have registered to EPT events 2022. Invitations to the registration process will be sent at the latest on the 7th of November 2022.
