Australian Open Official Statement

Tennis Australia continues to work with the government to ensure the health and safety of everyone.

The Victorian government has announced a five day lockdown commencing at 11:59pm on Friday. Australian Open sessions today and tonight will continue as planned with COVIDSafe protocols in place.

We are notifying ticketholders, players and staff that there will be no fans onsite at the AO for five days, commencing from Saturday 13 February.

Full refunds will be available for anyone who has tickets for these sessions and they will be advised on how to apply as soon as possible.  

The AO broadcast-only contingency plan will commence from Saturday 13 February until restrictions are lifted. Play will continue uninterrupted on the broadcast, albeit without spectators onsite.

We will provide further updates on the new conditions as soon as possible.  

A statement from Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews which outlines all the restrictions is available here.

Spectators will be banned from attending the Australian Open from Saturday, as Victoria enters lockdown for a third time in a bid to suppress an outbreak of the UK strain of coronavirus.
