LIV Golf announces aggressive expansion plans for 2023

Not even three events into its first season, LIV Golf is preparing an aggressive expansion for its second year and beyond.

Beginning in 2023, the LIV Golf invitational series will become the LIV Golf League, a 14-event series of events featuring 12 four-player teams competing on both individual and team levels. While the breakaway tour did not announce specific dates, tournaments would be sited in North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and the Middle East.

LIV Golf, which competes this week at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., has drawn criticism for its financial origins. The Saudi government's Public Investment Fund bankrolls LIV Golf, and critics have accused LIV and its players of sportswashing — the process of using sports and other leisure pursuits to cover up Saudi Arabia's human rights violations.
