Although Made in Denmark is still almost a year away, tickets sales are already thriving with an ‘Early Bird’ offer of €53 for a Season Ticket having been well-received by Danish golf fans.

Just three days after tickets went on sale, more than 3,400 Season Tickets had already been snapped up by spectators eager to see the action, with tickets pre-purchased by sponsors taking the total past the 17,000 mark.

“It shows that there is huge support and interest in the tournament,” said Flemming Astrup, Made in Denmark Promoter. “Made in Denmark will be only the second European Tour event held on Danish soil, and the sales are clear evidence that the proclaimed interest from the Danish golf fans is quickly being turned into action.

“The fact that we are only a few days into the ticket sales and we are already close to reaching our first goal of 20,000 spectators is amazing. However, we hope that many more will join in and help create the perfect atmosphere and support for the Danish golfers. That was the main objective when we decided on setting the prices for a Season Ticket at only 400 kroner.”

The tournament will be played at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort from August 14-17, 2014. Until October 1, 2013, the ‘Early Bird’ offer gives golf fans the chance to watch European Tour stars in action for just 400 Danish Kroner (or approximately €53).

Securing large galleries for the tournament is important on more than one level, according to Astrup.

He said: “We are one step closer to making Made in Denmark a huge success. Not only for us as promoters, but also for the players competing in the tournament and for all golf fans in Denmark, who we hope to welcome next year. The support of the Danish golf fans is a crucial step towards making this tournament a permanent fixture over the coming years.”

With experienced Danish players such as Thomas Björn, Anders Hansen, Søren Kjeldsen and Søren Hansen likely to line up alongside a wave of rising stars, led by World Number 43 Thorbjørn Olesen, the Danish fans should have plenty to cheer next August.
