Tickets to Davis Cup tennis tournament finale Nov. 30-Dec. 2 in Portland sold out in less than 30 minutes after their 10 a.m. offering Monday, according to The Oregonian.
The rapid sale guarantees that top men’s tennis players from the United States and Russia will square off in front of a capacity crowd at 12,000-seat Memorial Coliseum, the arena’s first sellout for a sporting event in seven years, Rose Quarter officials said.
Tickets weren’t inexpensive, either. Three-day passes ranged from $90 to $600.
U.S. Tennis Association officials acknowledged that the luster of the 105-year-old tournament had worn off in recent years when they took over City Hall last month to trumpet Portland’s hosting of the event.
