The ATP World Tour Finals will stay at London's O2 Arena until 2015, the ATP announced on Wednesday.

The capital has hosted the event since 2009, and has enjoyed unprecedented success with over 250,000 fans flocking to the end-of-season showdown every year.

"We are very happy to announce the extension of our original commitment in London for a further two years, meaning the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals will be played in London for at least the next three years through 2015," ATP executive chairman and president Brad Drewitt said.

"We are very proud of our marquee event, the ultimate showcase of the best of men's tennis. The excitement created by our season-ending tournament in London has been fantastic, with fans, players, media and commercial partners all supporting the event in an unprecedented manner.

"This week we look forward to welcoming our one millionth fan through the gates at The O2 since 2009. We thank every one of those passionate tennis fans for helping to create the electrifiying atmosphere at The O2, which has offered a spectacular stage for our biggest event."
