This Roland-Garros 2022 begins with the main draw matches on Sunday May 22. The date of the men’s final, which traditionally closes the fortnight, is set for Sunday June 5, 2022.
The Roland Garros ticketing system (see the official website) for the 2022 edition has been revised. The objective of the organizers is to fill the courts “to full capacity”. For this, access to the stands has been reworked with the sale of 1,500 “annex-up” tickets which will allow ticket holders to attend matches on the annex courts but also to fill the boxes of the central court Philippe Chatrier , in case of low attendance. Often empty, the presidential stand will experience change in this 2022 edition. The organizers will give the possibility to club volunteers to be able to attend the matches from this stand, by inviting them regularly.
For the second consecutive year, tickets at €10 for young people under 25 will be on sale. Also note that in addition to the qualifying matches and the main tournament matches, other types of tickets are available for peripheral events: Children’s Day, the Legends Trophy… It is also possible to obtain tickets when arriving at the end of the day thanks to the Evening Visitors offer. Finally, the organizers offer Weekend Passes, Semi-final Passes or Final Passes.
The global allocation for Roland-Garros is known. In 2022, this will amount to 43.6 million euros, i.e. 7% more than in 2019. 2.2 million euros are promised to the winners of the singles tables. The organizers had promised to make an effort in the allocations for the qualified and eliminated from the first round. Something done for players who have not passed the qualifications with a 66% increase in the allocation allocated to the qualifications compared to 2019 and 30% compared to 2021.
In a press release, the French Tennis Federation indicates that “the increase in the allocation for the 1st round of the singles draw and qualifications makes it possible to support the populations of players who have suffered the most from the health crisis in recent years.”
Roland Garros has been broadcast for many years by public service channels and Eurosport, but there have been changes since last year. Exit Eurosport: the broadcasting rights of the competition are now shared between France TV and Amazon Prime (subscribe to Amazon Prime Video), the video on demand service, which offers evening matches and those played on the Simonne-Mathieu court. The semi-finals and finals are co-broadcast.
