“Boston is quickly becoming a dynamic home for women’s sports,” LPGA Commissioner Mollie Marcoux Samaan said in a statement. “We are thrilled to join this incredible movement, as the famed TPC Boston prepares to host the 2024 FM Global Championship, marking a historic return of the LPGA Tour to New England.”

Boston will also be the home of a new Professional Women’s Hockey League team in 2024 and a new National Women’s Soccer League team in 2026.

“We can’t wait to team up with our newest partner, FM Global, to bring the world’s best female golfers to one of America’s great sports regions,” the commissioner said. “We are truly grateful to FM Global for its commitment to elevating the LPGA and to using our collective platform to inspire, empower and advance young girls and women, on and off the golf course.”

TPC Boston has hosted 17 PGA Tour events including previous FedExCup Playoff events, is a par-71 layout that has been the recipient of accolades including being named as the No. 1 Private Golf Course in New England, by New England Golf Monthly.

FM Global is one of the world’s largest commercial property insurers.

The 2024 competition will start a five-year partnership between the two organizations, and it marks FM Global’s first major sports sponsorship. Fenway Sports Management helped secure FM Global’s sponsorship of the championship as part of a commercial alliance with the LPGA formed earlier this year.
