The Laver Cup will make its first appearance in London in 2022, but how much will tickets cost when they go on sale ahead of time? What site will it be played at? The Laver Cup is a tennis version of the Ryder Cup that was first held in 2017.
The top players from Europe compete against the best from across the world, rather than just the United States as in tennis. Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Nick Kyrgios, and John Isner have all graced the ranks of Rod Laver Cup, named for Australian legend Rod Laver.
Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe are the team leaders, with two Grand Slam champions as team captains. There is no female edition of the tournament, unlike in Golf, where there is the Solheim Cup. The Laver Cup will make its debut in London in 2022 – but how much do tickets for the event go on pre-sale?
Laver Cup 2022 Tickets
The Laver Cup, which will be held at the London 02 Arena and has a capacity of 12,500 people, is a hard-court event like the ATP World Tour. As such, because there won’t be any grass at Wimbledon, it won’t be used in the Laver Cup. The US and Australian Opens are both played on hard courts, while Roland Garros in France features clay as the fourth major tournament.
The 2022 Laver Cup will go on pre-sale this Friday, March 4th ahead of the event, which is set to be held on September 23-25th.
The official website for the Laver Cup specifies that multi-session passes will cost around £185 GBP in total – although VAT and other charges are not included. Single-session tickets will be made available at a later date.
Suites Are Available: But Costly
Some suites are included as part of the Laver Cup package for 2022. They are, however, considerably more expensive for the greater views and gourmet food that come with them.
According to the Laver Cup website, a ticket for a suite in 2022 will set you back $4,000 per seat.
At current exchange rates, that’s $4,480.85 USD. The premium tickets are sold out, as is the Club Captain’s Club, which includes old muckers Borg and McEnroe – 11 and seven grand slam titles each.
On tour in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Borg and McEnroe were famous rivals who met at Wimbledon in 1981.
When McEnroe turned up in 1980, Borg was on a roll of winning the Wimbledon tournament every year since 1976.
The Swede defeated the American, but 12 months later, McEnroe would end Borg’s streak and take home the first of three trophies at SW19.
