Ontario’s increasing COVID-19 vaccination rates, drop in COVID-19 cases and the accelerated plans from the provincial government to enter Stage 3 of its reopening plan – and the details of that plan – all bode extremely well for fan attendance at our tournament in Toronto. . All of these factors combined meant we took the decision to plan for fan attendance at our event. We are absolutely delighted at the prospect of hosting spectators at the tournament this year. Our number one priority is the health and safety of the Canadian public, players, staff, volunteers and fans.

Tickets will go on general sale to the public on Monday, July 26. Once on general sale, fans will be able to purchase tickets directly from www.nationalbankopen.com or by calling 1-877-283-6647. If fans have questions regarding tickets, they can email tickets@tenniscanada.com and our ticketing team will be happy to assist.

Ticketholders are encouraged to come to Aviva Centre using a personal vehicle and only with the seating pod that they will be sitting with. Ticketholders should avoid using mass public transportation systems as much as possible.

Due to the increase in the number of fans that will be allowed in attendance at the National Bank Open, in accordance with Ontario’s Stage 3 reopening plans, we are unable to provide parking for all fans. If you are eligible to receive parking with your tickets, you will receive an email with parking instructions closer to the dates of the tournament.

There is cash parking available for all other ticketholders at the Green P parking lot located at the TTC Pioneer Village subway station on Steeles Avenue West. For more info, click here.

No cash parking will be available on the campus of York University.

Our ticketing and operations teams are working hard on our COVID-19 protocols for fans, which have been impacted by the Government of Ontario’s latest announcement regarding Stage 3 of its reopening plan. Our number one priority is the health and safety of the Canadian public, players, staff, volunteers and fans. As such, the likes of the following measures will be implemented:

  • We will adopt a mobile ticketing system at this year’s event and there will be no printed tickets.
  • Fans will have access to Centre Court only. The rest of the site will be dedicated to the players, broadcasters and key tournament operations staff who are part of the controlled environment.
  • Drinks and basic food items will be available via in-seat service only. All food and beverage purchases will be made through the official National Bank Open app and delivered to their seat. Fans are also encouraged to bring their own food and drink.
  • Fans will be required to wear masks at all times onsite, except while eating and drinking, and are encouraged to maintain physical distancing whenever possible.

Yes. Following the February 2 announcement when we announced National Bank as the tournament’s new title partner, the event’s new name is the National Bank Open presented by Rogers.

The men (ATP) will play in Toronto in 2021, and the women (WTA) will play in Montreal.

All 2020 ticketholders who kept their order on account will be contacted with options for the 2021 event. Further details regarding your tickets will be shared with you at a later date. If you have further questions regarding tickets, please email tickets@tenniscanada.com.

  • Our ticketing representatives will be available from Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
  • Due to the large influx of requests, we would like to thank you for your understanding in the event of a delayed response.

National Bank Open presented by Rogers would not be one of the most successfully run tennis tournaments in the world without the help and tireless work of our volunteers. To continue to grow our incredible volunteer team we are always looking for new, enthusiastic people to join one of our many roles we have available.

No, due to the coronavirus pandemic and following measures imposed by various government officials and the ATP, National Bank Open was postponed until 2021.

This means that women’s tennis will be in Montreal, while men will compete in Toronto this year as they were initially slated to in 2020.

The Tokyo Olympics’ tennis event is scheduled to conclude on Sunday, August 1, almost a full week before the National Bank Open starts. The National Bank Open is an important event on the ATP calendar and players have had success playing our tournament in the lead up to the US Open, such as Rafael Nadal in 2019 when he won the National Bank Open and the US Open within just a few weeks. We do not believe the Olympics will have an impact on our player field this year.

Since they won the most recent edition of the tournament in 2019, with the 2020 National Bank Open having been postponed to 2021, Bianca Andreescu and Rafael Nadal will remain the defending champions

It has been rare for National Bank Open to not be held, but the most recent instances occurred during World War I (1915-1918) and World War II (1941-1945). Due to the global situation, the tournament was unable to be played during those years.

The National Bank Open is the engine of tennis development in Canada. 90% of the revenue that is successfully invested in the development of the sport each year comes from the profits of the tournaments. 2020 was a very difficult year for the organization. Repercussions are anticipated to be felt over the course of the next few years.

However, Tennis Canada is privileged to be able to count on passionate employees as well as on loyal clients and partners who will help during this rebuild period.
