R&A to implement ballot system for tickets to attend St. Andrews Open in 2022

·1 min read

The 150th Open Championship will commence next year on the Old Course at St. Andrews.

As the R&A anticipates high demands for tickets, it announced on Tuesday that it will implement a ballot – or lottery – system for those wanting to attend the historic championship.

The ticket ballot will run from July 1 through October 4, 2021. Fans can only enter through The One Club, a free-to-join membership program at www.TheOpen.com.

“We expect exceptional demand to be part of these celebrations and the ballot will give as many fans as possible the chance to secure a ticket and be part of history being made at one of the world’s most revered and renowned sporting events,” said Martin Slumbers, chief executive of the R&A.

Only single-day tickets will be distributed as weekly tickets have been discontinued. The R&A said it did this to allow for as many fans to attend as possible. Ticket prices will be £95 for an adult on championship days and will range from £20-£50 on practice days.

The R&A will allow for half-price youth tickets for those 16-24 years old. It will also continue its “Kids go Free” program for those under 16.
