Interest in LIV Golf’s first tournament in Australia has sparked record ticket sales, with more than half of the entire capacity sold since LIV Golf Adelaide was announced last week.
As of Monday, approximately 35,500 tickets have been sold — 32,500 grounds tickets and 3,000 hospitality tickets. Of that total, 25,000 were sold within the first 48 hours after tickets became available for the 2023 event in South Australia, to be held April 21-23 next year at The Grange Golf Course.
The high demand is evidence that sporting fans around the globe are excited for the 2023 season with fans already securing tickets from South Africa, Thailand, Singapore, Fiji, the United States, Canada and beyond. The support from Down Under has been unprecedented with fans eager to see reigning Open Champion Cameron Smith, along with countrymen Marc Leishman and Matt Jones.
“I knew LIV and the Australian public would just absolutely embrace our platform,” said LIV Golf CEO and Commissioner Greg Norman. “I’m looking forward to not only playing in Australia, but playing in front of friends and family,” Smith said. “Adelaide will be awesome.”
The LIV Golf Adelaide field will also feature six-time major winner and Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson; two-time major winner and reigning LIV Golf Individual Champion Dustin Johnson; and other major winners such as Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka, Sergio Garcia and Henrik Stenson.
