The global coronavirus pandemic affected all competitions in different sports. Sports organizations had to go from stadiums full of fans to sad loneliness. However, little by little it began to return to ‘normality’. In the last hours, the sale of tickets for the first Grand Slam of the 2021 season began: the Australian Open .
The official social networks of the Australian tournament shared the prices and number of tickets that fans can obtain to access Melbourne Park from Monday, February 8, 2021 to Sunday, 21. The groups will be reduced, although with great news, since the Ticket costs were reduced or frozen in some cases, so that those who want to go see their idols, such as Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic , can do so in the most accessible way.
Tickets that can be purchased on the official Australian Open website start at $ 49 for the John Cain Arena . To access the main stadium, Rod Laver , the basic price is 62 dollars during the day, while at night it will be 65. On the other hand, the Margaret Court Arena has lowered its price. In the day it will cost 56 dollars, while 60 at night.
The sale will be divided and will be made into family ‘groups’ of between 1 and 6 tickets to avoid crowds in the stadiums. All will be digital. This is part of the organization’s ‘COVIDSafe’ project. It also serves to avoid contact and help with tracing close contacts in the event of a positive case of COVID-19.
“The AO will be a great celebration for Melbourne and all of Victoria after an incredibly difficult year,” said Tournament Director Craig Tiley . “It will look a little different as we prioritize everyone’s safety. It will be a fantastic opportunity to get together and experience many of the best things about Melbourne – world class live sport in an exciting festival atmosphere.
