Except for qualifiers, there are no ticket sales at the stadium itself before or during tournament. All bookings have to be made before the event. The tickets sell out really fast, so you better be prepared.

Keep in mind there are only 3 ways to (legally) buy tickets:
– the official Roland Garros website
– the Viagogo Roland Garros exchange ticket website
– official French Open agencies that propose exclusively VIP tickets and corporate hospitality offers. You can find the complete list here.

The events

Maria Sharapova

Qualifiers – 19 to 22 May

Tickets for the stadium during the qualifiers give the bearer access to the entire public area within the stadium. Courts 6 to 18 have unreserved seating and are open to all. Court Suzanne Lenglen is also open to all spectators to watch players from the main draw practising before the tournament starts.

Roland Garros Kids’ Day – 23 May

Roland Garros Kids’ Day is a charity event, devoted to fund raising for charitable organisations. On Kids’ Day, exhibition matches are scheduled on the three main courts, with plenty of other activities and practice sessions on the other courts and throughout the stadium.

French Open – 24 May to 7 June

Follow our Roland Garros 2015 coverage on Tennis Buzz.

Legends Trophy

The Legends Trophy (Trophée des Légendes) brings together twenty-four of history’s greatest champions, grouped according to age in the two men’s draws, and twelve former women’s tennis stars. Matches are played on court 1 and court Suzanne Lenglen during the second week of the French Open.

Wheelchair tennis tournament

The wheelchair tennis tournament is held on courts 7, 9 and 11 during the second week of the French Open. All wheelchair tennis matches can be watched by holders of outside courts tickets.

The courts

Court Philippe Chatrier

Tickets for show courts (Philippe Chatrier, Suzanne Lenglen, court number one) give access to the outside courts; you will be assigned an allocated seat for the whole day. On the outside courts, seating is on a first come first served basis, there is no allocated seat.

Court Philippe Chatrier

Court Philippe Chatrier was built in 1928 as Roland Garros’s centerpiece and remains its principal venue, seating 14,840 spectators. The stadium was known simply as “Court Central” until 1998, when it was renamed for Philippe Chatrier, the long-time president of the Fédération Française de Tennis (FFT) who helped restore tennis as a Summer Olympics sport in 1988.

Court Suzanne Lenglen

The secondary Roland Garros stadium with a capacity of 10,068 spectators, the court Suzanne Lenglen was built in 1994. Suzanne Lenglen, born in 1899, was the first female tennis celebrity and one of the first international female sport stars, named La Divine (the divine one) by the French press.

Court Suzanne Lenglen Roland Garros

Court One

Nicknamed the “Bullring” because of its circular shape – is a favorite among serious tennis fans because of its relatively small size ( 3,800 seats) and feeling of close proximity to the action.

Court 1 Roland Garros

Outside courts

Courts 2, 3 and 7 are the main outside courts and have been the scene of some stunning French Open upsets in the past. In the early rounds of the tournament, outside courts are also the place to be to watch the top players practicing.

    Hi, I’m hoping based on past experience you can tell me what kind of availability to expect when general pubic tickets become available. If I log in ~7am Paris time on 3/11, will there still be good tickets? It’s unclear from the site if all the category 1 seats were only available through the premium packages. Also, can i expect tickets for all days to still be available? I’m hoping for either both days of quarters or a quarter and men’s semi. Will i realistically be able to get Cat 1 or at least 2 seats for those days still or were they all sold to the agencies and premiums? Thanks!

  2. ludmilla says:

    Hi, You don’t need to buy packages or premium to get category 1 tickets. Category 1individual tickets will be available on 3/11 but they will sell really fast.
    I see you have a chance to get cat 1 tickets especially for the quarters.
    Good luck and please tell will tickets you got!

  3. SMCTennis says:

    Hi, for March 11th 2015, do you know the exact time for the UK to log onto the ticketing site? Can’t see anything on the Roland Garros ticketing site that says when exactly they go on sale? Many many thanks. SMC

  4. ludmilla says:

    I don’t know for sure but the previous years it was 7am Paris time, that’s 6 UK time

  5. Lian says:

    According to the email I got from the FFT, ticket sales will open at 10am paris time on the 11th.

  6. Kate says:

    Yes, they have also confirmed on Twitter (several times!) that this year the sale starts at 10am, so 9am UK time. It’s been 3 hours earlier for the last 3 or 4 years, but previously the time varied. I believe this is the first time they’ve publicised the start time, so I’m expecting a longer wait in the queue than in previous years.

    This will be my 7th year of trying to get tickets—the first couple of years there were glitches in the system that made it difficult but these have been smoothed out and I’ve had no problem since. BUT I can clearly see an increase in demand, as it becomes harder to get “good” seats each year. I’m planning to take whatever I can get for the days I’m going—but it’s the first week where the outside courts are terrific value. I’ve never tried for the later rounds, but a friend of mine had no trouble getting semis and final tickets just a couple of years ago.

    I do wish they’d stop changing the ticketing site though, as they had it working fine a from a few years ago. All those extra pages for pre-ordering food and stuff are just distracting when all you want is to get your hands on those precious tickets!

  7. ludmilla says:

    I’ve updated the post. I find it strange that they change the hour this year.

  8. ludmilla says:

    Did you all managed to get the tickets you wanted?

  9. Shamim says:

    Hello All passionate Tennis/French Open Fans,

    Am hoping to fulifill a real life-dream and see tennis at Roland Garros this year, with the target for the SemiFinals Mens for June 5th. By the time I got through in the virtual que this morning, no individual tickets left, and am kicking myself as I hesitated for a couple mintues to get the only option for Cat. 3 Men’s and Ladies Semifinal pass and saw (paired/2) tickets vanish before my eyes.

    Am trying to be proactive to identify anyone who ends up realizing they have extra tickets for this day/event. My wife and I wlll be endlessly appreciative.

    Thanks in advance

  10. Shamim says:

    Does anyone know when the ticket exchange will be available on Viagogo. Is it usually April 1st?

    (will be anxiously trying to get a pair of men’s semifinal tickets).

    thank you,
    shamim

  11. ludmilla says:

    Hi Shamim, you should follow Viagogo on Twitter or Facebook to know when RG tickets will be available.

  12. Shamim says:

    Ludmilla,

    Thanks much. I saw today on the official roland garros website that it seems viagogo/ticket exchange will open
    on April 8th. I hold my breath and cross my fingers.

    Hi guys,

    I’m looking to go over to Paris from London for a day. All tickets on the website seem to be sold out, is it possible to queue on the day for the outside courts just like Wimbledon?

    Cheers, Paul

  18. ludmilla says:

    Hi Paul, as I said in the article, there are no ticket sales at the stadium. You should try viagogo or evening visitors tickets.

  25. Gina says:

    Hi there
    I have two questions. First, if I buy ground passes for Friday’s Men’s semi finals – what actually happens in the grounds? Will we see anything (TV screens) or just hear the buzz?

    Second. If anyone needs to sell their tickets for the men’s semi finals on Friday at a reasonable price (I’m a student) then I would please like to buy 2 tickets.

    Please email me if you have some for sale!
    Thanks

  26. ludmilla says:

    The schedule is here: http://www.rolandgarros.com/en_FR/content/the_tournament/info/tournament_schedule.html with ground passes you’ll see doubles, seniors, juniors, wheelchair tennis.

    There are giant screens on Place des Mousquetaires and near Suzanne Lenglen

  27. jovan says:

    I need two decent price tickets for men`s semi finals. ([email protected])

  28. Reid says:

    Does anyone know whether there is a significant advantage to purchasing premium packages such as the ones with open bar or lunch included or are they not worth the additional price? If there are many perks and luxuries included with the packages, it may be worth it, but if the seats are similar and there are not, it doesn’t seem worth it.

  29. Juan says:

    I am trying to get tickets for the men’s final match this year, but the RG official website do not recomend to buy tickets at viagogo as a legal seller or reseller.
    Another issue is that the official RG website says thet the tickets must have my name printed and this will be checked with my ID?
    If this is correct tickets from viagogo will have another name printed and not my name. Can I go in the court with this tickets or actually is checked with IDs?

  30. ludmilla says:

    Hi Juan,

    – this year’s How to buy tickets is here: http://tennis-buzz.com/how-to-buy-french-open-tickets/
    – Viagogo is no longer in partnership with Roland Garros.
    – You must have your name on the ticket, you have absolutely 0 chance to enter the stadium if it’s not the case. And yes, IDs are checked. For obvious reasons, security controls will be increased this year.
    – If the seller on viagogo is honest, he’ll put your name on the ticket if not, sorry for you…
