Wimbledon’s Centre Court debenture gains to be used to repay loans

Wimbledon Centre Court

It is slightly lower than the initial £100,000 prediction, but the Wimbledon Centre Court debentures for 2021-2025 will still set you back a pretty penny.

The All England Lawn Tennis Ground has confirmed that it will cost £80,000 per debenture with 2,520 going on sale.

So what exactly will you get for your £80,000?

“Each debenture will give its registered holder the right of entrance for one person, free of charge, to the Grounds, together with the right, free of charge, to one Centre Court seat, for each of the days on which play is scheduled to take place at The Championships from 2021 to 2025 inclusive,” a statement on the Wimbledon website said.

“In addition, each debenture will carry, on each day during The Championships from 2021 to 2025, the right of entrance for one person to the private Centre Court debenture holders’ restaurant, bar and lounge facilities.”

The 2,520 debentures will earn the AELTC £201,600,000 before tax and the funds will be used to continue “development, improvement and refurbishment works of the facilities, including:

• To repay the loan taken out to finance the redevelopment of No.1 Court including the new retractable roof; and
• Contribute to future stages of the construction programme resulting from the Wimbledon Master Plan, including future development of Wimbledon Park Golf Course. ”

Debenture holders are able to resell their tickets on the open market and there have been cases where it has been sold for more than £100,000.
