TENNIS fans attending the Australian Open next year will have to pay more to see popular matches thanks to a radical overhaul of the ticketing structure.

The new tiered ticketing for this summer’s event means the cost of tickets will fluctuate depending on the popularity of the session and where an individual wants to sit.

According to Tennis Australia, there are now three categories of seating choices available to fans, ranging from the best seats (category 1) to the cheapest seats (category 3) in both Rod Laver Arena and Margaret Court Arena.

There will also be an overall average increase of 5 per cent for prices on Rod Laver Arena tickets.
