The Caja Mágica complex consists of 3 main stadiums:
– Center Court (Manolo Santana Stadium), with a capacity of approximately 9,685 spectators. Assigned seating.
– Stadium 2 (Arantxa Sánchez-Vicario Stadium), with a capacity of 3,439 spectators. Assigned seating in some sessions.
– Stadium 3, with a capacity of 2,228 spectators. Unassigned seating.
In addition, there are various outer competition and training courts (unassigned seating).
A ticket entitles the holder to watch all of the matches played during the session in question and for the stadiums for which it was purchased. Therefore, to watch all of the matches played in a specific stadium when there are two sessions on a given day, you will need to purchase tickets for both sessions.
The Mutua Madrid Open is a combined tournament (WTA – Women’s Tennis Association and ATP – Association of Tennis Professionals). As a result, women’s and men’s matches will be played simultaneously, making it impossible to choose between one or the other when purchasing a ticket.
Since the tournament consists of eliminatory rounds, the tournament schedule can only be announced the night before. For this reason, you cannot purchase a ticket in advance in order to watch a specific player.
1.2. Tournament Sessions
