Welcome to the 2017 Miami Open
On behalf of the entire tournament staff I want to welcome you to the 2017 Miami Open presented by Itaú.
We hope you take the time to experience everything we have to offer. Located in one of the most beautifulcitiesin the world, with multicultural population and glamorous reputation the Miami Open has an energy and excitement that is uniquely Miami.
Make sure you ventureout to the Miami Open Experience on the west side of the stadium. We have brought back the beach, but this year it includes multiple shade structures and interactive games for you to enjoy. This is the perfect place to hang out in-between matches to enjoy a cold beverage, or grab a quick bite from one the gourmet food trucks on hand, while sitting on one the many Adirondack chairs and watching live action on the large video board.
I want to thank our presenting sponsor Itaú for their incredible energy and dedication to help make our event the best in the world. Their vision for the future of the tournament fits perfectly in line with our philosophy of providing our guests with a world class experience in all aspects of the event.
Make sure to visit the Itaú booth to view the tournament’s championship trophy and get player autographs during the daily autograph sessions.
We are alsohappy to welcome back Lacoste as our apparel and eyewear sponsor. The quality and look of the merchandise, along with the wonderful shopping experience they provide definitely takes the event to an even higher level. Make sure to check out their retail store and peruse their entire line of men’sand women’s apparel and eyewear.
When coming out to the event make sure to bring your Mastercard, the preferred card of the Miami Open. Show your Mastercard at the front gate and receive early access to the site, 30 minutes before the general public for your ticketed session. We are fortunate tohave an amazing group of global brands affiliated with our event.
