Acapulco, March 2, 2024.- The director of the Abierto Mexicano Telcel presented by HSBC, Álvaro Falla, received the media present at the closing of the XXXI edition of the tournament, and proudly highlighted the estimated attendance throughout the week.

“The attendance of what we have seen has been incredible, fans coming from different cities of the country. We are very pleased to have stayed with Acapulco and decided that this was the destination that was a must and dear to us. Today we are going to celebrate another year! The 31st year of a tournament that is the best in its category. We are going to close with a flourish,” said Falla.

“It remains to close, but we have had an attendance of approximately 35,000 [people] so far, much more than expected. I confess I had my doubts that it would be possible, but the fans really believed in the project, it’s a great number. It’s a nice first stage in the rebuilding process. The most important thing was to take this first step. It is worth gold for Acapulco,” he said.

At the beginning of the traditional closing conference of the tournament, Falla joked with those present “Did anyone imagine that this would end like this? Raise your hand! The truth is that it ended much better! Thanks to you for joining us and making this happen. It is very emotional and we are very happy to say we did it! We did it against many predictions and moments that made us doubt. This is perfect, it happened and the objectives were achieved better than we expected,” he said.

The tournament was held on its usual date, at the end of February and beginning of March, and less than four months after Hurricane Otis, a real handicap. In addition, with the addition of having the ATP 250 in Los Cabos in the previous week, it was held for the first time before Acapulco, which implied a different and highly demanding challenge for Mextenis, the organizers.

“The back to back has been a great experience, I will not deny that it tested us in many issues. We did well as a team, but we have to analyze everything to be able to operate widely as we like,” he acknowledged.
He also remarked that the help for Acapulco and its reconstruction is not going to stop for Mextenis. “We are going to continue together in this process,” assured the also CEO of the company and recalled that in another of the actions to support the local community, Falla reminded that a Challenger tournament will be played at the Arena GNP Seguros complex in April.

In this 2024 edition, the Abierto Mexicano Telcel presented by HSBC offered 1,350 direct jobs and, year after year, during the eight days of activities, more than 11,000 families from the hotel, commerce and workers sectors benefit during the tournament.

Finally, he thanked the players and the ATP for their support during the process of the last months.
“The ATP has been our great partner in this process. Without their support it would have been difficult to make this decision. They have made us think about many things, it was an agonizing process and they with their historical experience have been an invaluable support. For them the decision we made was the best, they applauded it”, he concluded.
