Wimbledon is the pinnacle of tennis (and sport in general). It is a prestigious global affair attended by fans around the world every July.

In 2024, the famous annual lawn tennis tournament “The Championships” will be held for the 137th time. The competition has a rich history and tradition and is held at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London, England.

Ticket prices are an indicator that demand for Wimbledon this year is higher than ever, and understandably so.

There are still some high-caliber competitors in the race in both the men’s and women’s tournaments as the stakes increase with each round. Jannik Sinner, Novak Djokovic, Carlos Alcaraz and Elena Rybakina all command our attention.

So how expensive is it to watch the big Grand Slam tournament live in SW19 – at this point in the tournament?

On StubHub International, the cheapest ticket for Tuesday’s men’s and women’s quarter-finals on Court 1 costs a whopping £2,398. Beyond that, access to Centre Court costs a minimum of £3,287 (excluding fees). Unfortunately, it doesn’t get much cheaper on other third-party platforms, especially as the player pool continues to shrink.

SeatGeek has a single listing of two tickets for the men’s semifinals that cost $8,092 — per ticket. By comparison, tickets for Super Bowl LVIII between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers cost an average of $9,815. In other words, attending Wimbledon is as financially demanding as attending the most popular sports program in the United States.

Meanwhile, TickPick is offering tickets for the final day of the championships starting at $10,440. Anyone lucky enough to pay that incredible resale value is in for a treat! While you do that, we’ll be watching the remaining rounds from the comfort of our couches and hope to do the same one day.

Can you believe that retail vouchers for this year’s event on Wimbledon.com cost just £30 (Session 1) and no more than £275 (Session 14)? However, to get them direct from the source you will need to take part in the ballot. Alternatively, you can try your luck at The Queue on your preferred date to be in with a chance of being there.
