After more than a week of competition, including qualifying, the aisles are packed. And even if the tickets have all been sold, it is still possible to get some, but beware of scams.
Roland-Garros is in full swing. The legendary Porte d'Auteuil tournament is once again sold out this year, one year after beating its attendance record with more than 600,000 visitors over the three weeks including the qualifications and the main draws. Closed on April 14, the Grand Slam ticket office was stormed by tennis fans. But it is still possible to buy tickets at the last minute.
Ticket prices for Roland-Garros 2023:
- Court Philippe-Chatrier : from 40€ to 320€
- Court Suzanne-Lenglen: from 50 euros to 155 € (excluding boxes)
- Court Simonne-Mathieu: from 60€ to 110€
- Short annexes: 39 euros for the first week of the tournament (May 28 to June 3)
- Night Session: from 40 euros
A ticket resale service is available on the Roland-Garros website. Anyone facing a last-minute unforeseen event can resell their ticket on the sole condition that it is not nominative. It will then be necessary to create an account on the official website of the tournament with a valid email address. A cancellation fee of six euros will then be charged at the time of refund. The new buyer will then have to rename the ticket with his first and last name. He will also have to register his date of birth to be able to be in good standing on the day of his arrival at Roland-Garros. A valid ID will be requested at the entrance.

And to avoid any scam, here are some tips. First, make sure that all your information (first name, last name and date of birth) is saved on your ticket. If you have not been asked for one of these three data, beware because your identity cannot be proven during the ticket check. If you are going through a third party, ask to have the ticket in both paper and digital version. The email of origin must be sent by the address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Finally, make sure your ticket has a file number, in five digits, as well as a ticket number, in eleven digits this time.
Tickets can be offered at other venues, apart from Roland-Garros. Platforms like Leboncoin, 2eMain or Ebay may contain resale ads, often at higher rates than those charged by the tournament. It should be remembered, however, that participation in an illicit secondary market for the sale of tickets for a sports event is criminally punishable.
