Solheim Cup approaches another sell-out success

8.20am 8th August 2007 - Travel

Excitement surrounding next month’s Solheim Cup has been matched by unprecedented levels of ticket sales. Only 10 percent of the original ticket allocation remains available to purchase for the biennial matchplay tournament, which takes place from 14 – 16th September.

The overwhelming demand demonstrates the immense popularity of women’s golf and for the format of the event. The last remaining tickets can be purchased online at

This will be the tenth edition of The Solheim Cup, which is played over three days and features a mixture of four-ball, foursomes and singles matches. It is being staged at the Halmstad Golfklubb, where the Europeans will be looking to their 2003 win for inspiration. That year, the event was held at Barsebà┬Ąck G&CC with sell out crowds of 100,000 witnessing an emphatic European victory.

This year’s European side will be keen to avenge the painful defeat of 2005 in which the USA Team won on home soil to extend their overall winning margin to six events to three.

“It’s great to be playing on home soil and we want as many spectators to come and support Europe as possible,” said Helen Alfredsson, this year’s European Team Captain. “It’s going to be a fantastic week and we really appreciate the support that we’ll get from a home crowd.”

Organisers are encouraging the public to purchase tickets and parking tickets well in advance to ensure that they do not miss out on any of the action.
