Australian Open cuts ticket sales

Australian Open

Health authorities have imposed a limit on ticket sales for the Australian Open.

This average will be taken in the face of high Covid-19 cases on Thursday, four days before the first sport-related event begins in 2022.

"At a time when hospitalizations and COVID-19 cases are growing in Victoria, these mitigation strategies are proportionate and designed to help limit the spread," the state government said in a statement.

The Victoria State Government has announced that ticket sales for the tournament will be capped at 50% for any session where that proportion of tickets sold has not yet been reached.

All tickets already sold will remain valid, the statement added. No changes or cancellations are expected.

The contest begins on Monday at Melbourne Park. The final is scheduled for January 30.

The use of masks will be mandatory, and limits will be imposed on the number of people who can enter areas where indoor events are held. An order was already in force so that all spectators are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus.
