Ryder Cup Europe has today released 3,000 Match Day tickets on general sale in an initiative designed to ensure as many golf fans as possible get the chance to be part of The 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles next month.
Organisers have announced a first-come-first-served sale of the tickets for play on Friday September 26, Saturday September 27 and Sunday September 28. The one-off sale begins today, Monday 18th August.
The tickets represent a final tranche of returns from the event’s commercial family and with just over a month until The 2014 Ryder Cup begins, the decision was made to ensure as many members of the public as possible could make use of them.
Richard Hills, Europe’s Ryder Cup Director, said: “It’s common for a small number of General Admission tickets to return once the final round of commercial allocations are complete. We are delighted to be able to release these tickets to the general public – it is great news for the event and will add to the very special atmosphere only The Ryder Cup can produce.
“Tens of thousands of people made the effort to register for Ryder Cup tickets last year, and while many were successful, many others were not. Therefore, we wanted to make these tickets available to them as well to people who perhaps hadn’t registered before.”
