London: The WTA says the Tournament of Champions will move from Bali to a new venue in Sofia, Bulgaria from 2012.

The tournament features the six highest-ranked players who have won a title during the year, but have not qualified for the end-of-season WTA Championships.

Bali will host the event for the last time Nov. 2-6 this year before it moves to the Arena Sofia for three years from 2012. The venue will be opened in July.

Bulgaria hasn`t hosted a WTA tournament for 22 years.
