Melbourne, 4 October 2011 | Tennis Australia

The majority of Australian Open 2012 tickets will remain at 2011 prices when purchased in advance, organisers announced today.

This includes the $29 Ground Pass, often described as one of the best value tickets in world sport, and both the $49.90  singles ticket and $149.90 family ticket to Hisense Arena for the first eight days of the tournament.

Both the five-day and “after five” Ground Pass will remain at 2009 levels – $99 and $20 respectively – when purchased in advance, with a new three-day Ground Pass available for $69 when pre-purchased.
Premium Rod Laver Arena tickets will remain at 2011 levels from the quarterfinals to the women’s final during the second week, with an increase of 9 per cent for the in-demand men’s final.

“Following a rigorous review of all our ticketing we believe we have a pricing structure which offers enormous value but also capitalises on the huge demand we experience for the Australian Open, the biggest sporting event in the world in January,” Tennis Australia CEO Steve Wood said today.

“Our aim is to keep the event as affordable as we can and involve as many fans as possible, as well as generate substantial revenue to channel back into the sport of tennis in Australia,” Wood continued.

Event day prices will apply for Australian Open 2012, with tickets purchased on the day of use incurring an extra $5.00 fee.

Australian Open 2012 packages go on sale from Wednesday 5 October, with single session tickets on sale from Monday 10 October.
