Deadline looms for ticket ballot applications for 2022 Open Championship

The R&A is reminding fans that they only have until October 4 to apply for tickets to attend next year’s Open Championship at St Andrews.

Around 1.2 million tickets have been applied for since the launch of the ticket ballot in July, demonstrating the huge interest among golf fans to be part of the historic championship, which will be celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2022.

Entering the ticket ballot is the only way for fans to secure a place at the Old Course to see the world’s best golfers in action. There is also a very high level of demand for hospitality packages, which are set to completely sell out on championship days.

Fans still have time to register their details via The One Club, the free-to-join membership programme, to ensure that their ticket application is submitted before the ballot closes next Monday at 12pm BST.

Johnnie Cole-Hamilton, Executive Director – Championships at The R&A, said: “We want to ensure that as many fans as possible have a chance to be a part of this momentous occasion at St Andrews next year and so we are reminding them that the deadline for the ticket ballot is fast approaching.   While we have already received thousands of ticket applications from throughout the UK and around the world, the ballot process ensures that everyone has a fair and equitable opportunity to secure a ticket for The 150th Open.”

Ticket prices are £95 for an adult on the four championship days and range from £20 to £50 on practice days.

Free tickets will be available to children through the R&A’s ‘Kids go Free’ programme, while half-price youth tickets are available for 16-24 year-olds.
