The continental fight will be held from December 20-22 at the Dragon Lake Golf Club in Guangzhou, the capital of the Guangdong province.

Asia bagged their second title in a sudden-death play-off when the sixth edition of the annual contest, loosely based on the Ryder Cup model, was held in Brunei last year.

"The first hosting of the Royal Trophy in China is a historic event," Royal Trophy players' committee member and six-times Major winner Nick Faldo said .

"The Royal Trophy players' committee is looking forward to a magnificent competition between Europe and Asia and a great showcase of continental team matchplay golf."
