Find out about buying tickets for the Australian Open.
Australian Open 2014 runs from Monday 13 January to Sunday 26 January.
AO tickets are easy to get. You can buy them online in advance or at the venue once the tournament has started (subject to availability).
The information below is correct to the best of my knowledge based on past years but please note that it may be different in 2014.
Rod Laver Arena (RLA)
- This is the main court and tickets are split into day and night sessions.
- This is the number one court where matches are played for the first eight days.
- There is a day session each day and a night session is added on the Friday and Saturday nights.
There can still be RLA and Hisense Arena tickets available on the day of play. There are ticket sales booths in both arenas where you can find out what is available if you’d like to upgrade your ground pass.
- Ground passes have been sold out in advance for the middle Saturday of the AO but on the other days you can buy a ground pass at the gate which gives you access to all courts except Rod Laver Arena and Hisense Arena
- Ground pass access includes Margaret Court Arena (MCA), which has 6,000 seats. By 2015 MCA will be redeveloped to have a roof and an additional 1,500 seats. It will be interesting to find out whether or not the new MCA will have allocated seats or will still be included in ground pass access.
- A ground pass gives you access to see the top bands that play every night and there is also an After 5 ground pass which is available after 5pm and is about half the price of a full ground pass.

Become an Australian Open Member for early access to tickets
There are three levels of membership that different levels of early access to tickets. I love being an Australian Open member, particularly because being able to buy tickets early means you get better seats.
Member benefits include ground passes, access to the Members’ Lounge, a discount of merchandise and a member ballot for French Open, Wimbledon and US Open tickets.
