Due to Covid-19 restrictions, Australian Open 2021 will be run with only 25% seating capacity (subject to change). This reduces the number of available tickets and means spacing between seats is enforced. Groups who book together will sit together where possible, however last minute bookings may be subject to availability and changes if required by Tennis Australia. This year, there are only two seating categories, Upper Level or Lower Level, as illustrated by the seating plan (above). We have our ticket allocation and can advise section numbers when booking.
Tickets for Margaret Court Arena and John Cain Arena are available on request (subject to availability) and include access to corresponding zones in Melbourne Park (see page 42 of the brochure or below). MCA and JCA seating maps available on request.
