Nearly 750,000 fans attended the games of the US Open back in 2019. Since then everything has changed with the introduction of Covid 19. Last year, the tournament was held behind closed doors without the fans. However, this year United States Tennis Association will allow the fans back into the stadium. This might lead to one of the most crowded gatherings since the pandemic struck in 2020. The US Open 2021 will also be the first Grand Slam to play with 100% capacity since the Pandemic.

“We are extremely excited to be able to welcome our incredible fans back to the U.S. Open this year. While we were proud that we were able to hold the event in 2020, we missed having our fans on-site, because we know that they are a large part of what makes the U.S. Open experience unlike any other.
