LIV Golf has announced a multi-year deal with JCB, one of the world's largest privately-owned manufacturers of construction and agricultural equipment, ahead of its UK event from 26-28 July. 

LIV Golf UK by JCB will take place a week after The Open at JCB Golf & Country Club in Uttoxeter, England. 

The event will mark LIV Golf's third stop to the UK since LIV's inauguration in 2022.

The last two LIV Golf events in the UK were staged at Centurion Club in Hertfordshire.

LIV Golf UK by JCB will be the final tournament outside of the United States for the 2024 LIV Golf League season.

"Our newest tournament partnership exemplifies LIV Golf and JCB’s commitment to innovation and collaboration," said Monica Fee, LIV Golf Senior Vice President and Global Head of Partnerships.

"We’re proud to have one of the UK’s most impressive family-owned businesses on board to further elevate this highly anticipated event and continue the global impact LIV Golf is having on a new generation of fans around the world."

JCB Golf & Country Club is considered by many course experts as one of the most exciting new golf courses to be built in the UK over the last decade.

Officially opening in 2019, the course, designed by internationally renowned Robin Hiseman of European Golf Design, is built on a 240-acre site adjacent to the JCB World Headquarters and serves as a showpiece for the engineering excellence of JCB’s machinery.

The 7308-yard par-72 course stands shoulder to shoulder with the very best in the world.

Its signature 17th hole is situated on a converted island and is a breathtaking 255-yard par 3.

In addition to the golf course itself, JCB’s presence will be felt across the tournament with its impressive machinery featured around the grounds and special activations in the fan village to be announced in the lead-up to the event.

Hospitality tickets go on sale exclusively for LIV X members this Friday 22 March ahead of the public on-sale on Monday 25 March
