Melbourne Park is divided into three zones around Rod Laver Arena, Margaret Court Arena and John Cain Arena as part of rigorous infection prevention and control measures in place to ensure the safety of players, officials, and the broader Victorian community.
Dedicated entry points will apply for each zone and no movement will be permitted between the zones.
There will be a daily crowd capacity of 30,000 for the first eight days, with 25,000 per day from the quarter-finals and 12,500 in Rod Laver Arena for the final three days of the tournament.
Over the two weeks of the event, this will equate to about half of the average attendance in the past three years.
The Australian Open is a key pillar of Victoria’s major event program – last year it contributed an estimated $387 million to the state’s visitor economy.
The Victorian Government has invested almost $1 billion over the past 10 years in upgrading and expanding Melbourne Park so that it can continue to host the Open until at least 2039.
When completed in time for the 2023 Australian Open, the final stage in the Melbourne Park redevelopment will have created 2,300 full-time jobs through the Victorian Government’s Local Jobs First Policy.
The final stage of the redevelopment includes the 5,000-seat Show Court Arena, a new event centre and conference space – Centrepiece at Melbourne Park – as well as two new match courts and a logistics hub.
