Full crowds will make their return to the Australian Open in 2022 at Melbourne Park, which will include the new 5,000-seat stadium court for the first time. Tickets are now on sale for the event.

With restrictions easing in Victoria, full crowds can now attend sporting events including major events like the Australian Open and Boxing Day Test, as well as domestic competitions such as the A-League and NBL.

However, crowds must be vaccinated, as will also be the case with players, as confirmed by Australian Open Tournament Director Craig Tiley on Saturday as he launched the 2022 event. It means that Novak Djokovic will need to have been immunised against Coronavirus if he wants to defend his title.

The new 5,000-seat stadium court was officially unveiled on Saturday, as well as a new dining precinct, media facilities and broadcast studios at Melbourne Park.

The new facilities are part of the final stage of the 10-year redevelopment of Melbourne Park.

The new stadium show court is located between Rod Laver Arena and John Cain Arena and features 5,000 seats on top of the action and a roof. Spectators will be able to access the new arena with a ground pass ticket. Tickets are now on sale to the opening grand slam of the year through Ticketmaster who are the official ticketing agency of the tournament.

The recently completed Centrepiece events centre at Melbourne Park will also be utilised for its first Australian Open when the tournament gets underway on January 17.

The tournament will also feature new fan activations, with the introduction of the spectacular new AO Beach House, designed to bring the laidback holiday vibes to life within the new dining precinct.

The new dining precinct is also host to the Penfolds Restaurant, a four-course fine-dining experience; the more casual Penfolds Bistro and the extravagantly luxurious and perfectly pink Max’s Rosé Bar, on the terrace overlooking Garden Square.

“The Australian Open will be back in all its glory in January and provide a massive boost to the city, the state and the country as it plays a major role in helping Melbourne roar back to life," Australian Open Tournament Director Craig Tiley said.

As part of the 2022 Australian Open celebrating 100 years of women’s competition at the highest level of the sport, the women’s semi-finals will move to prime time, with both matches to be played in the night session on Thursday 27 January, in a major shift to the schedule.

It also means the men’s semis will now be played on the Friday in a day and a night session, instead of being split across two nights.
