Ticket Options

Reserving your seats at Foro Italico:

  • Ticket Resellers – Our recommended reseller sites for the Italian Open include StubHub and Viagogo.
  • Direct Website offers primary tickets: www.internazionalibnlditalia.com.

Internazionali BNL d’Italia is a great middle ground between a small event and a Grand Slam. It has the look and feel of something major, but the stadiums and grounds are a perfect size to comfortably enjoy the tennis. With that being said, there really is not a bad seat in the house. Central Court seats 10,000 people, meaning it does not have nose bleeds seats. Whether you book a stadium seat or enjoy Rome-ing (get it?) the grounds, you will have a great time and see extremely high quality clay court tennis.

Ticket prices at Internazionali BNL d’Italia are incredibly reasonable. To see the best of Italian tennis fight their way into the draw, pre-Qualifying tickets are available for just $5. Qualifying rounds cost about $25, and a grounds pass to see main draw action ranges from about $20 to $45 depending on which day you plan on attending.  

For great day session tennis from the first round through the Quarterfinals, check out the fairly new Next Gen Arena. Ticket prices range from about $35 to about $75 dollars.  Last but certainly not least is the Central Court stadium. Prices vary greatly, and both day and night sessions are offered. First round night session is only about $20, but the curve is steep. A golden ticket to the final day of action, which sees both the men’s and women’s singles final, costs about $140. Central Court ticket prices fluctuate throughout the event, but there are plenty of affordable options.
