 More Tickets Now Available for the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships

Dubai, UAE – February 11 2022: Organisers of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships have welcomed the news that the Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management has confirmed that, starting from February 15, sports events are allowed to have full capacity for participation, spectating and operations.

And tournament owners and organisers Dubai Duty Free have responded by offering further tickets to tennis fans eager to see their favourite stars compete during the next two weeks.

“We were originally looking at 80% capacity in the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium and we were very pleased with that given that we held the tournament behind closed doors last year. But the news that we can return to 100% is very much welcomed and we thank the UAE authorities and the Dubai Sports Council for the good news,” said Colm McLoughlin, Executive Vice Chairman and CEO of Dubai Duty Free. “The mandatory use of face masks remains, but many more fans will now be able to see such stars as Simona Halep and Novak Djokovic as the tournament takes place over the next two weeks.”

The organisers are keen to point out that tickets are available for sale from the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium Box Office for all days of the tournament, including finals, and a further allocation will now be available on the website, www.dubaidutyfreetennischampionships.com. Prices start at AED 55.

Fans are strongly advised to purchase their tickets through the Box Office or online through the official ticket agent, Platinumlist, and to avoid secondary vendors who inflate the ticket pricing.

“We are very happy that we can now open up more tickets sales to the public, so many of our loyal fans can enjoy watching their favourite players,” said Tournament Director, Salah Tahlak. “We encourage them to use the official website of the tournament and Platinum list, or to simply drop by the Box Office to purchase their tickets”.

The tournament begins with the WTA event which takes place between 14th and 19th February and features eight of the world’s top 10 players. The tournament then continues between 21st and 26th February with the 30th anniversary of the ATP Tour 500 tournament when world number one Novak Djokovic will be bidding for his sixth Dubai title.

The Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships is owned and organised by Dubai Duty Free and held under the patronage of H. H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
