The event will be replacing the highly-popular Ecuador Open that has been played in Quito since 2015.

Considering the participants over the years in Quito, the likes of Roberto Carballes Baena, Feliciano Lopez, Dusan Lajovic, Ivo Karlovic, Gael Monfils, and Albert Ramos Vinolas have paid a visit to the Ecuadorian capital.
