Although there are still just over two weeks before the 148th Open Championship tees off at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland, tickets for next year’s tournament at Royal St George’s have already gone on sale today (July 1).
The Open is returning to St George’s for the first time in almost a decade from July 12-19, 2020, and fans who are eager to book their place at the famous Kent links can purchase tickets via TheOpen.com from today, provided they are a member of The One Club.
The One Club is The Open’s own membership scheme, which guarantees priority access to tickets, as well as a range of other benefits. It is free to join by registering via TheOpen.com/The-One-Club.
Johnnie Cole-Hamilton, Executive Director – Championships at The R&A, said: “We are excited about the prospect of The Open returning to Royal St George’s for the first time since 2011 and it promises to be a true festival of golf for the tens of thousands of fans expected to attend.
“We have seen record ticket sales for The Open this year and we anticipate that there will be high demand from fans wanting to attend Royal St George’s next year. All four championship days will be all-ticket so we are encouraging fans to take advantage of early bird prices and secure their ticket well in advance by visiting TheOpen.com.”
Fans will be able to take advantage of early season prices available for Weekly Tickets, Daily Tickets and Weekend Bundles, and those using MasterCard credit card as a means of payment will also benefit from a £5 discount per transaction.
Children under the age of 16 will continue to be able to attend The Open free of charge under the ‘Kids Go Free’ initiative, provided they are accompanied by an adult guardian who has secured a junior ticket in advance. Fans under the age of 25 will be able to save as much as 50% off the cost of an adult ticket thanks to reduced price options and they will also benefit from the availability of free accommodation at The Open Camping Village.
A new range of hospitality experiences, Origins, has also been launched for next year’s championship. Fans can choose from three packages on offer – Scorers, Engravers and Champions – and enjoy world class hospitality as they watch the world’s best golfers compete to lift the Claret Jug.
