The Open announced in a press release that all four championship days of the tournament are now sold out, including all adult, youth and “Kids go Free” junior tickets.
An estimated 190,000 people are expected to attend during the week of the 14th-21st of July with tickets previously selling faster for this Open Championship than any that have preceded it.
Fans can still purchase tickets for the practice days which take place July 14th – 17th and they are available at TheOpen.com.
A ticket waiting list and a hospitality waiting list have been set up for fans who missed out on securing tickets for the historic event and The Open have warned fans about buying tickets from unofficial or secondary sources.
This is the first time in 68 years that The Open will take place in Northern Ireland and it is already one of the most eagerly anticipated sporting events to come to the island of Ireland.
The Open is golf’s oldest championship. Played since 1860 on iconic links golf courses, it is the sport’s most international Major Championship with qualifying events on every continent.
Italian Francesco Molinari clinched the claret jug at Carnoustie in July of this year and he will be hoping that he can defend it successfully when the championship comes to Royal Portrush in 2019.
