Australian Open created a new record when it comes to visitors for the 2016 event. More than 720,000 people came in to witness the event and this number is only expected to increase for the 2017 edition. Therefore, it becomes increasingly hard to get hands on Australian Open 2017 tickets. Ticketek is the official ticket agency and it is authorised to sell single session tickets for events at Rod Laver Arena and Margaret Court Arena. Prices of the tickets will vary depending on the seating positions and the number of sessions required.
Those who want to be seated close to action will have to pay a much higher price than faraway spectators do. The rates will also increase quite substantially for those keen on viewing more sessions of the 2017 Australian Open. Unlike in previous seasons, the introduction of the tier based pricing system means that the Australian Open is now in line with the major sporting events from the rest of the world in terms of ticket pricing.
It is also possible to experience hospitality and dining packages as part of the tickets. The Superbox at the Rod Laver Arena will cost a whopping $478 per person whereas options like the dining package at the Margaret Court Arena comes at $135 per person. A special option that offers the ability to have a seat on-court is available in very limited numbers and the price will be available on request. Being a member does help in getting priority when it comes to the tickets.
