How to get tickets to The Open at Royal Liverpool
The R&A have announced that tickets for the 151st Open at Royal Liverpool will run by ballot.
The ballot will open on Tuesday June 21 for just one month and will close on Wednesday July 20.
Ticket prices will start at £95 per person on Championship days and £25 for practice days.
Results of the ballot will be announced at the end of September.
In order to enter the ballot you must be a member of The One Club which is a free to join membership programme.
Fans can sign up to The One Club at The Open website and will be the first to be notified when the ballot is open.
Due to the success of the ballot for the 150th Open, the R&A decided to keep the process to ensure as many fans as possible had a chance to attend the event.
There was unprecedented demand to attend The Open at St Andrews that starts on July 10 2022.
More than 1.3 million applications were received for tickets and led to the highest-ever number of general admission tickets being issued to fans.
A record breaking 290,000 fans are set to attend the 150th Open next month.
Martin Slumbers, Chief Executive of The R&A, said, “We introduced a ticket ballot for the first time in the history of The Open for St Andrews to give as many people as possible the chance to attend the Championship and it proved to be very successful.
“We know the demand is growing and that the ballot is the fairest and most equitable way to give fans around the world the chance to secure tickets.
“We greatly appreciate the enthusiasm that fans have for The Open and look forward to welcoming as many of them as we can to Royal Liverpool next year.”
