This is the inaugural year of the tournament which is sponsored by Eurobet, the online betting arm of the Coral Group. This is a new biennial three-day event named in honor of the Spanish superstar.

The tournament features two teams of 10 players with a total of 26 points at stake through a series of foursomes, fourballs, greensomes and singles matches, with each member of the winning team receiving 150,000 euros and the runners-up 90,000 euros.

Friday's schedule will have morning foursomes and afternoon fourballs. On Saturday, players will compete in morning greensomes and afternoon fourballs and on Sunday, 10 singles, match-play matches will be held. The first match will confront both captains: Seve Ballesteros vs. Colin Montgomerie. In case of a tie, the playoff match will be a greensome.

This is the 100th anniversary of the Old Course at Sunningdale which was laid out by two-time British Open champion Willie Park. The next event on the European Tour will be April 20-23 for the Moroccan Open where Miguel Angel Martin will defend his title.
