The teams competed over four days with five fourball matches on both Thursday and Friday, four greensomes matches on Saturday morning, four foursomes matches on Saturday afternoon and ten singles matches on Sunday. It means a total of 28 points are available with 14½ points required for victory.

The prize money remained the same as for the 2009 event. Each member of the winner team received 65,000, the losing team €55,000 each, giving a total prize fund of €1,150,000.[3]

Teams[edit]

After his withdrawal his place amongst the World Rankings qualifiers was taken by Miguel Ángel Jiménez who had previously qualified through the Race to Dubai list. Jiménez's place in the Race to Dubai list was taken by Jacquelin.[5]
