I have been successful in the Ticket Ballot, but no longer want all the tickets that I have been allocated. What can I do?
Successful applicants will not be able to pick and choose which tickets they would like to purchase. You will either have to purchase all tickets in your allocation or none of them. If you choose not to purchase any tickets, your application will be cancelled and you will not be offered further tickets.
I have been successful in the Ticket Ballot, but wish to add additional tickets to my order.
Tickets for The Open are in high demand and the Ticket Ballot has been performed to try and make the process as fair as possible for all spectators. This unfortunately means that we will not be able to make any changes to ticket allocations after the ballot application process has concluded. Under 16 ‘Kids Go Free’ tickets had to be included as part of the ballot application process and all spectators must hold a ticket to the event in order to attend.
I have been successful in the Ticket Ballot, but I no longer want to attend. What do I do?
If you have been successful in the Ticket Ballot, you will be given a timeframe in which to pay for your tickets. If you choose not to pay for your tickets before the deadline, your application will be cancelled, and the tickets will be offered to other fans. You do not need to notify us if you no longer wish to attend.
I've paid for my ticket(s) but can no longer attend. Can I re-sell my tickets?
Refunds are available within 48 hours of purchase only. The Open’s official Ticket Resale Platform will be launched in due course. The Resale Platform will be available for any sold-out days and will allow fans to sell their tickets, for face value, in an official, safe, secure and trusted environment. This ensures fans have an option to re-sell their tickets, if required, and will be able to do so safely and in the knowledge that their tickets are going to genuine fans of The Open. Selling your tickets via any other means (for example on websites such as Viagogo, eBay, Stubhub, Gumtree) will result in those tickets being cancelled and entry refused at the gates.
I would like to add a Car Park pass to my order, how do I arrange this?
Parking will be available on at a later date. Ticket holders will be emailed with a link to do this in late 2022 or early 2023.
I am a Blue Badge holder and require accessible parking, how do I organise this?
If you require accessible parking, please contact us at when you are notified that parking is available (this is expected to be late 2022 or early 2023). Within this email, please confirm that you require accessible parking and attach a copy of your blue badge. We will then add a car park pass to your order. If your blue badge is due to expire prior to the event, we ask that you provide an updated copy before the event.
I was awarded complimentary Carer tickets as part of my allocation. Do I need to provide evidence of eligibility?
If you are successful in the Ticket Ballot and have included complimentary Carer tickets within your order, you will be asked to provide evidence of eligibility, following the conclusion of the ballot process. Please look out for this email later in the year.
