Ryder Cup Ticket Sales – The Truth

June 30th, 2018

With three months to go until the start of The 2018 Ryder Cup and the focus of the world’s golfing attention this weekend on the stunning venue of Le Golf National, French golf fans have shown their support for the biennial contest in record numbers. To date almost half of the 51,000 daily tickets purchased (43%) have gone to French fans, a number which comfortably surpasses the 37% of 45,000 per day which went to Scottish golf fans at Gleneagles in 2014.

Keith Pelley, Chief Executive of the European Tour, said: “The support we have had from everyone in France; the Government, the French Golf Federation and the fans has been superb, and these numbers bear that out. I am aware there has been recent speculation in various quarters that the French public will not support the event, but this is simply speaking without the facts. On the surface I can understand why this might look like an attractive story for the media apart from one key point – it isn’t true.”

We are happy to put the record straight.
