Wimbledon Men's Final Tickets Could Go For More Than $70,000
The price of Wimbledon final tickets "surge" due to Andy Murray's performance, according to Ellen Branagh of the London INDEPENDENT. Online ticket seller Viagogo said that tickets for the Wimbledon men's final "are set to top £45,000 ($70,000) as Murray mania swamps the nation." There has been "a 20% increase in searches" on the site for tickets to Sunday's final after Murray "booked himself a play" in Friday's semi-finals. Tickets for the final are currently traded for up to £15,000 ($23,000) per ticket, jumping by £3,000 ($4,500) since Wednesday afternoon. If the daily 20% rise continues, a pair could beat £45,000 ($70,000) by Sunday (INDEPENDENT, 7/5).
