The US Open tennis tournament has witnessed increased early demand for tickets for the 2024 edition, after general sales began yesterday (Monday).

Within the first hour, public ticket sales doubled last year’s total from the same time frame, according to a report from the Sports Business Journal. Ticket sales for the day also surpassed the figure for the entire first week of 2023’s public sales.

Additionally, the US Open’s pre-sale week saw its day one sales grow 65% year-over-year, according to the article.

The grand slam further celebrated a 99% renewal of its full series ticket plans, and sold out its mini plans and suites by the end of April. This was the fastest the US Open has sold through its suite inventory; last year, this sold out in June.

Hospitality packages sales were also up 300% year-over-year.

More than 950,000 fans attended last year’s record-breaking US Open during the entire three-week period, with the men’s singles title won by Carlos Alcaraz and the women’s by Iga Świątek.

This year’s event will take place from August 26 to September 8.
