Tommy Fleetwood will captain Great Britain and Ireland and Francesco Molinari will captain continental Europe in next year’s inaugural Hero Cup.
Two teams of 10 players will compete in foursomes, fourballs and singles at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club from January 13-15.
The competition is intended to give potential players of the 2023 Ryder Cup some experience in the tag team match events.
“The Hero Cup is a great idea. I felt it benefited me when I played in similar events,” Italian Molinari said.
England’s Fleetwood said it would be “a bit strange at first” to face Molinari, his playing partner in Team Europe at the 2018 Ryder Cup.
“The Hero Cup is a fantastic way for players to compete in team matches, which we both have always enjoyed.”
England’s Luke Donald, European Ryder Cup captain after Henrik Stenson defected to LIV Golfwill be present in Abu Dhabi.
He will name his team for the Ryder Cup at the Marco Simone in Rome from September 29 earlier this month.
