How to get tickets for the French Open 2024 – four ways explained

With the 2023 French Open in full swing, many tennis fans will be watching enviously and wondering how they can get themselves seated at one of the most prestigious sporting events in the world for 2024, so how exactly can you find yourself courtside at Roland-Garros?

The French Open was first held in 1891 and the event has seen history made on the bright orange clay on many occasions in front of the usually rapturous Parisian crowds. Stade Roland-Garros hosts a total of 20 courts, headlined by Court Philippe Chatrier, Court Suzanne Lenglen and Court Simon Mathieu.

Philippe Chatrier is the biggest of the three, holding a total of 15,225 spectators to watch the biggest stars battle it out at the only clay court major.

The men’s singles tournament at the French Open has been dominated by 14-time champion Rafael Nadal since 2005, and with the Spaniard’s announcement that next year is likely to be his last, what better time to get your hands on tickets to see the tennis legend potentially have a ‘last hurrah’.

Here, Tennishead explains how you can get hold of French Open tickets for 2024:

1. Buy French Open tickets from the official website

One fail-safe method to get your hands on French Open tickets is through the official tournament website.

Generally, tickets can be purchased directly through the tournament’s website around two months before the start of the French Open. However, you will need to be on your game as they sell out extremely quickly!

Pro: Buy tickets at face value

Con: No guarantee you’ll get the day or seat you want as millions of others will have the same idea

2. Buy French Open tickets from online resellers

If you are not able to buy a ticket through the official website, online resellers like StubHub are another option for attending the French Open.

However, it is likely that you will have to pay a premium for tickets purchased from a third party and should only purchase from verified sellers as there will be counterfeits lurking on the internet that could catch you out!

Pro: More chance of getting the day/seat you want

Con: Be prepared to pay a premium and take the risk of using an unofficial channel

3. Buy French Open tickets through a hospitality company

If you fancy enjoying the full Parisian experience then buy tickets through a hospitality company such as Sports Travel & Hospitality UK (STHUK).
