Surface is clay. According to officials it should be already promoted next year to a Tier II event

It can only be, since it's scheduled to be held in the same week.

Considering that ATP Kitzbühel very nearly got scrapped earlier this year, this adds to the confusion.

Maybe it's an Austrian thing; last year's ATP tournament held the week before RG was moved from St. Pölten to Pörtschach at the very last minute.

A new clay tournament, in the middle of the US hardcourt season?

Strange. But welcome.

A clay tournament after Roland Garros?! I doubt Venus or Serena will play there then.
