With the first qualifying match about a week away, BB&T Atlanta Open Tournament Director and Chief Development Officer, Eddie Gonzalez, said today ticket sales are ahead of any pace that was set in the six-year history of the tournament.
“Tennis fans in and around Atlanta are showing how much they love our sport by buy tickets at a rate that exceeds previous years,” Gonzalez said. “What is more indicative of the passion our customers have for tennis is the selling out of many of our most attractive VIP packages.”
It’s true, in addition to tickets to some sessions, many of the special VIP experience packages are sold out or almost sold out.
Single-session seats are available between $15 and $95. More ticket information is available at: www.bbtatlantaopen.com/TicketsTravel/Tickets/
Some of 2015’s ticket options are:
⦁ Courtside Champagne Tables – SOLD OUT
⦁ Doubles Pro-Am, on Sunday, July 26 – SOLD OUT
⦁ VIP Suites for Wednesday and Thursday sessions – SOLD OUT
⦁ Limited seats are still available for the all-inclusive VIP Lexus Front Row seats with VIP access to Lexus VIP Lounge with open bar and free food throughout the tournament.
⦁ Limited seats are also available for the VIP Ladies Day Experience on Thursday, July 30.
⦁ VIP Champions Day brunch packages on Sunday, Aug. 2.
⦁ Saturday, Aug. 1 is Military Day. Active or retired military personnel with a military ID will receive two free tickets while supplies last. For those looking to purchase more than two tickets, servicemen and women can take advantage of a “buy one, get one free” deal for additional tickets that day.
Kids Weekend will be held during the opening weekend of the tournament, July 25-26. Up to four kids (18 and under) will get in free if accompanied by an adult who buys a ticket.
Also, don’t miss the legendary Commodores in concert on Saturday night, July 25, on the Stadium Court.
While watching the tennis at Atlantic Station, make sure you check out the PGA TOUR Superstore VIP Kids Club. Tennis fans ages 12 to 18 can register for a weeklong commemorative credential with reserved seats and other perks, including a meet and greet with an ATP World Tour player, Prince back pack, string, grip and a Wilson oversize tennis ball for autographs and a $40 gift card to PGA Tour Superstore. Less than 30 packages are remaining.
The annual tournament, which is the first event in the Emirates Airline US Open Series, has also announced the Bryan brothers, arguably the greatest men’s doubles team in tennis history, have committed to play. Two-time champion Mardy Fish will play singles and doubles with 2003 US Open champ Andy Roddick, who is coming out of retirement for the tournament. Two-time defending titlist John Isner is also signed up for the event.
Roddick will also be playing an exhibition match on Monday night against one of the best young Americans, Frances Tiafoe.
