The Western & Southern Open has announced plans to operate at full capacity for spectators when the tournament is held Aug. 14-22.
All tickets, including full series, mini-plans, single session and hospitality packages, will go on sale on Thursday, June 3, at 10 a.m. Information about available tickets can be found on the tournament’s official website.
“In keeping with the guidance from local government officials, we are eager to welcome fans back to the Western & Southern Open,” said Tournament Chief Operating Officer Katie Haas. “The fans bring so much energy and excitement to our event, and we dearly missed them last year. We look forward to returning to Cincinnati and welcoming our fans at this year’s tournament.”
Any necessary protocols for the health and safety of all attendees may be established by the tournament in concert with local authorities at any point prior to or during the event.
New in 2021, the event will move to a fully digital ticket operation which will allow for quick entry to the venue as well as easy transfer of tickets to family, friends and clients. Patrons will be able to access their tickets through the Western & Southern Open App. The transition to digital ticketing will have no impact on the process to purchase tickets when they go on sale June 3.
In addition, the entire venue will be cashless, with on-site transactions to be made with credit or debit cards. Reverse ATMs, which allow cash to be loaded onto a gift card, will be available at the venue.
