Demand For Wimbledon Tickets Down Due To Focus On World Cup

by Wochit 0:50 mins

As the 2014 Wimbledon Championships is underway, the world’s oldest tennis tournament has been overshadowed by the 2014 FIFA World Cup. According to Michael Bernstein of Tennistours.com, Wimbledon demand is down 20% from last year, most of which he attributes to World Cup interest. Even with a decrease in demand for the moment, Wimbledon is still well above the average secondary market price for the next tennis major, the US Open at Arthur Ashe Stadium. The most historic tennis tournament will hope to gain back its native following in the United Kingdom following England’s early departure from the World Cup in Brazil.
