ACAPULCO, MEXICO – Mundo Imperial Entertainment & Hospitality debuts Arena GNP Seguros, the new home of the 29th annual Abierto Mexicano Telcel (Telcel Mexican Tennis Open presented by HSBC), which concluded February 26.

Opened for this legendary sporting event, Arena GNP Seguros is a major breakthrough for Mundo Imperial as the company continues to epitomize hospitality in Acapulco. Located in the heart of Riviera Diamante in Acapulco, Arena GNP Seguros stands at over 968,000 square feet. The tennis stadium and multi-use venue was inaugurated exclusively for the Abierto Mexicano and will continue to host some of Mexico’s biggest events, from concerts and entertainment to cultural events, sports games and beyond.

“Arena GNP Seguros is a monumental development for Acapulco and for the legend & history of the Abierto Mexicano,” said Seyed Rezvani, Managing Director at Mundo Imperial Entertainment & Hospitality. “Mundo Imperial is thrilled to welcome players and guests from all over the world to this landmark for the destination.”
Arena GNP Seguros is the largest venue in Latin America for an ATP tournament, with capacity for over 10,000 fans to cheer on their favorite players, in addition to a Grandstand for 3,000, a Grandstand for 1,500 and three courts for qualifying rounds, plus features including but not limited to 4K technology, 28 private suites for spectators, multiple green spaces, accessible areas, a kids’ zone, and restaurant with panoramic views. Host hotel Princess Mundo Imperial welcomes fans to the tournament’s iconic Acapulco home just as the hotel celebrates its 50th anniversary. 

As one of Latin America’s most important sporting events, this year’s Abierto Mexicano featured Top 10 players including three-time champion Rafael Nadal (no. 4), Daniil Medvedev (no. 1), previous titleholder Alexander Zverev (no. 3), Stefanos Tsitsipas (no. 5) and Mattero Berretini (no. 7), and players from the Top 50 including Cameron Norrie (no. 12), Pablo Carreño Busta (no. 16), Taylor Fritz (no. 20), John Isner (no. 23), and Grigor Dimitrov (no. 37).

Arena architect José de Arimatea Moyao López, of Moyao Arquitectos, is also the master behind the new Teatro Libanés in Mexico City and the Forum Mundo Imperial in Acapulco, among other popular venues. Arena GNP Seguros continues the position of Acapulco as a leader in world-class hospitality.
