Are tickets available on third-party websites?

Modified on Thu, 01 Feb 2024 at 09:29 AM

All tickets for The Open must be purchased through one of the R&A’s official ticket channels. These include via The Open Ticket Ballot, via the Ticket Resale Platform or from one of our Authorised Providers.

Third-Party Ticket Resale Platforms and Marketplaces

The R&A does not permit the resale of tickets on third-party websites, ticket sales platforms or marketplaces. This means that any tickets being sold on any third-party ticket resale sites or public marketplaces are being sold without the R&A's consent. Adult general admission tickets for The Open range in price from £25 - £110. Click here for a list of face-value prices. 

Any general admission tickets being sold for higher than the prices above are not authorised by The R&A and may not be genuine tickets.  

The R&A maintains a strong position that it is against our Terms and Conditions to sell tickets on public forums, third-party sites or for excess of the original face value of the ticket. Any tickets identified for sale or found to have been sold in such a manner are subject to cancellation without refund.  

Authorised Providers

Please note that while the third-party resale of tickets is not permitted, the R&A partners with a select number of companies who are authorised to sell official hospitality and ticket packages to The Open, often in conjunction with a range of other experiences (including, for example, travel, accommodation and golf tee times). These companies are known as Authorised Providers and a list of them can be found here.
