“VIAGOGO TAKES A MILLION POUND GAMBLE ON MURRAY”
London, ENG (viagogo) 23 June, 2009 – viagogo (www.viagogo.co.uk), Europe’s leading secondary ticketing company, has today announced that if Andy Murray wins Wimbledon, all those who bought Wimbledon Men’s Final tickets on viagogo will receive a 100% refund.
Demand for final tickets was so high last year that they were selling from £1,500 – £8,000 for a single ticket on the secondary market. viagogo has already seen a 300% increase in ticket sales for this year’s championship and with Andy tipped to do well ticket prices are sure to be higher.
If Murray wins, viagogo expects to pay out in the region of a million pounds in refunded ticket costs, which is more than Murray would receive if he won the title.
Eric Baker, CEO of viagogo, said: “73 years is a long time to wait to see a male British Wimbledon champion. We really hope that this is Murray’s year both for him and for British tennis fans. Murray-mania is set to be bigger than ever this summer and we want to give spectators an extra reason to celebrate if he goes all the way.”
Tickets for all matches are still available at (www.viagogo.co.uk)
