Solheim Cup organizers have reiterated that their event will be played in September 2021, despite the Ryder Cup being rescheduled for the same month.

Both biennial events throw players from Europe against the United States.

"2021 will be an incredible golf year," LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan told BBC Sport.

"We are excited about this double-header, to celebrate all the great golfers, both men and women, who play for the US and Europe."

Whan had said in April that "nothing drowns out a Solheim Cup" and added "we wouldn't change our So lheim Cup as the Ryder Cup that changed theirs. "

Alexandra Arma, chief of the ladies' European Tour, added: "Together with the LPGA we will continue with plans for the Solheim Cup on September 4-6.

"This year we have all faced challenges to adapt to and as part of the changing landscape of global sporting events we will assess the long term impact of these changes on future dates of the Solheim Cup. "

Europe are the reigning Solheim Cup champions after winning the last event, in 2019, in Gleneagles, Scotland.

The next year's return game will take place at Inverness Club, Ohio, before the Ryder Cup is held in the midwestern state of Wisconsin.
