Slumbers announced Tuesday that Royal Liverpool Golf Club will organize The Open in 2022

R & A CEO Martin Slumbers has revealed that he is "deeply concerned" about The Open at Royal Portrush because of Brexit.

Slumbers said that the organizers "will make it happen", but have admitted that he will be happy when the Open Championship 2019 is over.

Portrush will organize The Open for the first time since 1951 from 18-21 July.

"As a management team we have spent a lot of time looking at unforeseen circumstances and what we have to do", says Slumbers.

Tickets for the camping days in the Co Antrim room are already sold out.

The decision to take the event to Portrush in Northern Ireland was announced in October 2015, eight months before the referendum to leave the European Union.

Since then there has been uncertainty about the backstop to preservation an open edge on the island of Ireland, which causes concern for the governance of the wave.

"Like any company, and I think of The Open as such, the lack of certainty about the rules, the law in which we operate under post- March 29 has caused us great concern," Slumbers went on.

"Would I want to do Portrush afterwards in the year that we might leave the European Union without a deal?"

& # 39; It does not threaten the staging & # 39; ;

He added: "The future of the border is the main concern: We have more than 2,000 containers, some from as far away as the Middle East, to cross the Irish Sea and we start building on April 2.

"We have a commitment with ministers and the Parliament, but the care is everywhere If you know the rules you play with, you can play, you optimize what you have.

"The problem is that we do not know if we need to re-plan to collect all our containers in Dublin (Republic of Ireland), whether they are transported by Belfast (Northern Ireland), whether they the United Kingdom.

"It is not a threat to the staging, we will make it happen. just more complicated than we expected. For insiders it is a bit more difficult, but for everyone outside it has no influence at all, they will not notice it. "
