Fans are not too excited about the upcoming Davis Cup event in Madrid. Kosmos, Gerard Pique’s company which has taken over Davis Cup is struggling to sell tickets
On November 18, eighteen national team will begin playing in the first edition of the event which has replaced the traditional home and away format that has been in place for years. The new format was approved last year despite criticism from top players and top tennis-playing countries.
Ticket sales have only reached 50 per cent for nine of the 25 sessions . Ties between Argentina and Chile, and Serbia and Japan, both have more than 8,000 tickets still available.
Kosmos spokesperson said, “We are working with the 17 embassies in Spain in order to reach international communities living in Spain. We have economic prices. The cheapest ticket costs 25 euros and you can see a tie (comprising three matches).”
