Ticket Terms and Conditions
Each ticket for a Miami Open (“Tournament”) session is a revocable license that only grants entry into the Tournament premises and a spectator seat (or a standing location, as applicable) for the applicable Tournament session (the “Event”). The person seeking entry pursuant to such license, and any accompanying minors (“Holder”), agrees that such ticket license is subject to these terms and conditions (“Terms”) and by acceptance and/or use of such ticket for the Event, Holder is deemed to have read and agreed to the Terms. The Terms include and incorporate the Tournament Ticket and Accreditation Policies (https://www.miamiopen.com//policies), provided that these terms shall govern in the event of a conflict. Failure to comply with any of these Terms shall result in forfeiture of such license and all rights arising under it without refund and shall entitle International Players Championship, LLC, SFS Events, LLC and South Florida Stadium LLC (collectively, the “Tournament Parties”) to pursue all legal remedies available. Admission may be refused/revoked and Holder may be ejected in the sole discretion of the Tournament Parties.
ALL TICKET SALES ARE FINAL. NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES EXCEPT AS PROVIDED HEREIN.

Capacity may be adjusted upward or downward without notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if an Event is postponed or cancelled for any reason, reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate individual Holders with proof of purchase for a subsequent Tournament session, if held.
