Tickets to THE PLAYERS Championship on sale starting February 16
In response to health and safety protocols, on-site capacity will be reduced
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Florida – On Tuesday, February 16 at 10 a.m. ET, tickets to THE PLAYERS Championship 2021 will go on sale to the general public. THE PLAYERS returns to TPC Sawgrass the week of March 9-14, with a reduced fan footprint to ensure that the health and safety of all attendees remains the number one priority.
“We are looking forward to a great week of golf for a limited number of fans at THE PLAYERS Championship,” said Executive Director Jared Rice. “Our team and organization have put a tremendous amount of thought, effort and creativity into producing a championship that will continue to engage our entire Northeast Florida community and generate charitable and economic impact. As we have seen across the entire PGA TOUR landscape, the health and safety of everyone involved will remain our top priority in 2021. With that as a backdrop, we ask for our fans onsite to simply do their part to ensure a safe event for themselves and others in the community.”
All tickets to THE PLAYERS 2021 will be mobile and must be purchased via THEPLAYERS.COM/tickets. Each guest will be allowed to purchase up to two tickets per day, per account, while supplies last.
