LONDON (AP) — The WTA's season-ending tennis championships will move to Singapore in October for at least five years, and WTA founder Billie Jean King will be the event's official ambassador.

The WTA said Sunday that the expanded WTA Finals tournament will be held from Oct. 17-26 and include the top singles and doubles players from 2014 as well as competition among up-and-coming tour players and veterans.

Singapore will be the ninth city to host the WTA Finals since 1972. Most recently they were held in Doha, Qatar from 2008-2010 and Istanbul, Turkey from 2011 to last year.

King made the announcement near the All England Club, where she won a record 20 overall titles.
