Fans attending the Australian Open in 2019 will enjoy lower prices and increased ticketing options at the tennis grand slam.

Organisers confirmed that the entry level price of tickets to Margaret Court Arena and Rod Laver would be reduced by A$15 to A$62.

In addition, the cost of tickets to the men’s and women’s Australian Open final are being cut by a third.

Tennis Australia chief revenue officer Richard Heaselgrave said the tournament has worked hard to improve ticketing choices, and make the Grand Slam tournament more accessible for tennis fans.

“AO 2019 will offer fans an even more affordable entry price point into Rod Laver Arena and will increase the options for all tennis fans,” Heaselgrave said.

“It’s a great thing that the tournament can offer even better value tickets to every match on the incredible Rod Laver Arena, while at the same time empowering fans by giving them more choice.”

Organisers also revealed the ground pass price, currently $49, has been frozen for Australian Open 2019.

“The AO has long been renowned for offering the best-value sporting ticket in the country with our famous ground pass, it’s become a tradition for so many to ‘catch up at the tennis’ in January, and we are pleased to announce there will not be a price rise in 2019,” Heaselgrave said.

“With access to incredible world-class tennis on all the outside courts and Melbourne Arena, along with so many entertainment and food offerings, Australian Open ground pass is the best value ticket in town.”
