Ryder Cup Europe is delighted to offer an additional opportunity for golf fans to watch Europe's bid to regain The Ryder Cup from the United States at The Celtic Manor Resort, City of Newport, Wales, from October 1-3.
A supplementary number of Ground Admission match day tickets are available on a first come first served basis for fans seeking to see Colin Montgomerie's European Team take on Corey Pavin's United States Team on The Twenty Ten Course –- the first time the match has been staged in Wales in its 83-year history.

Richard Hills, the European Ryder Cup Director, said: "We have received this inventory back from our commercial and hospitality packages and we are delighted to make them available to the general public. We see this as a positive opportunity for more fans to watch this year's match. It has arisen because The Ryder Cup, like many sports events, is not immune to the economic downturn, although we remain open for hospitality sales and continue to take bookings."

Transportation passes with access to the Park and Ride facilities are also available at £20 per day per car.
