The lockdown in Austria, which begins next Monday, means that the Davis Cup finals tournament from 25-30 November 2021 will be played without crowds.
Innsbruck, 19th November 2021.– Due to the measures taken by the Austrian government, the Davis Cup Finals 2021 Group C (France, Great Britain, Czech Republic) and Group F (Germany, Austria, Serbia) ties will have to take place without an audience in Innsbruck’s Olympia-Halle.
“I know the teams, organisers and everyone involved in the event will share our disappointment that the Davis Cup Finals event in Innsbruck will now be behind closed doors. We will continue to work together with our partners and ensure that we prepare for this great event while following all government guidelines”, says ITF President, David Haggerty.
“We are very sorry for the tennis fans, who have been looking forward to this event for months now. We know the importance of fans for a competition like Davis Cup. But there is no question that we will carry all the measures that are being applied to help confine and improve the current critical Corona situation. The health and safety of all those involved with the event is our highest priority”, adds Kosmos Tennis CEO, Enric Rojas.
Several organisational questions, which have come up in connection with the lockdown, will now be discussed by Emotion, the event organisers in Innsbruck, Kosmos and ITF and will be announced in the upcoming hours.
The refunds of already purchased tickets will be one of the matters discussed. Latest information will be uploaded on this website.
