Ian Poulter admits LIV Golf will continue long after 2025 following a recent chat he had with Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF) governor Yasir Al-Rumayyan, according to an interview in the Telegraph.

Despite the recent framework agreement in place between the PGA Tour, DP World Tour and LIV Golf's bankrollers, PIF, it is believed the LIV Golf League, which concludes its second season in Miami this evening, "will go on and on".

When pressed on the future of the LIV Golf League in light of the PGA Tour's framework agreement with PIF, Poulter said: 

"I talked to his Excellency last week [at the LIV event in Jeddah]. He told me, never mind 2024, 2025 – LIV will go and on."

Poulter, who is a co-captain at Majesticks GC on LIV Golf, added: 

"I was there and talked to him, and he is passionate as he was at the very beginning in all this. He loves the concept, loves how it’s progressing and the impact it’s made and is making. You see it throughout the sports world, not only in golf."

Al-Rumayyan played golf in the same group as R&A chief Martin Slumbers at the Dunhill Links Pro-Am on the DP World Tour earlier this month.

Poulter also revealed how one LIV Golf player has hit out at Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy's new TGL, a new indoor golf league that will air on Monday nights. 

One player reportedly told Poulter: 

"It’s a blatant fop to Tiger and Rory to keep them onside and earn them millions of guess what, ‘guaranteed money’".

Poulter's Majesticks were defeated in the Quarter-Finals in the season finale in Miami. 

They went down 2-1 to Sergio Garcia's Fireballs.

Poulter teamed up with his co-captain Lee Westwood to a 4&2 loss at the hands of Abraham Ancer and Carlos Ortiz. 

Majesticks co-captain Henrik Stenson beat Garcia in his singles match but Eugenio Chacarra defeated Sam Horsfield in match two to ensure the Fireballs came through. 

The Fireballs were then defeated by Bubba Watson's RangeGoats in the Semi-Finals.

Sunday's Final sees the 4Aces (defending champions), Crushers, Torque and RangeGoats compete in one round of strokeplay to determine the season-long team champions.
