There could be ‘affordable’ tickets available for the inaugural Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix next year, according to the event’s chief executive.
The Las Vegas GP was announced earlier this year and is set to take place on a Saturday night in November next year.
Tickets are yet to go on sale for the event, but with the race taking place in Las Vegas, it was thought that prices would be high. However, according to a report from The Sports Business Journal, the CEO of the event Renee Wilm said there will be a special area with more affordable prices.
Wilm was speaking at the AXS Sports Facilities and Franchises and Ticketing Symposium in Nashville, Tennessee, and said that there would be affordable areas aimed at a younger audience with a watch-party feel.
Wilm, who is also the chief legal officer and chief administrative officer for Formula 1 owner Liberty Media, said that tickets are likely to go on sale early next year.
The news of a more affordable option comes as fans voiced their anger over the use of dynamic pricing for the British Grand Prix next year.
Some F1 fans had to wait hours to secure tickets, with prices increasing due to the demand.
