Greipel returns to the Tour of Britain for the first time since 2010, when he picked up three stage victories, including the final sprint into London.
"This is great news for British fans who can look forward to seeing Andre Griepel battling it out in the sprints at the Aviva Tour of Britain,” said Race Director Mick Bennett.
"We fondly recall Andre's previous participation in the race, and are delighted that he, and the Lotto Soudal team are returning to race in Britain. With three or four stages of this year's race likely to be bunch sprints, there is sure to be stiff competition for stage wins that we are sure will make for great racing.”
