Istanbul, Turkey (SportsNetwork.com) - The ATP announced Tuesday that Turkey will host its first-ever tour event in 2015.

The Garanti Koza Istanbul Open will be played on clay from April 27-May 3 at the spectacular Koza World of Sports facility, which is promoted as the largest tennis academy in the world.

"We are delighted that the ATP World Tour will be taking place in Turkey for the first time from 2015," said ATP executive chairman and president Chris Kermode. "This incredible new facility in Istanbul will make a wonderful addition to the many remarkable venues that feature on the ATP World Tour throughout the season. As we add an important market such as Turkey to our global footprint, the ATP World Tour will be set to take place across 62 tournaments in 32 countries in 2015."

The event will take place in week 17 of the 2015 ATP World Tour, alongside the Portugal Open in Oeiras and the BMW Open in Munich.

Istanbul previously hosted the WTA's season-ending championships from 2011-2013.
