Located behind the baseline in John Cain Arena, the Sportsnet Super Suite gives patrons a unique taste of the Australian Open corporate hospitality experience without corporate hospitality prices!
Open for the first eight days of the tournament, the Sportsnet Super Suite is an exclusive, spacious and air-conditioned lounge that runs the length of the baseline and includes both behind glass and inside arena areas. What’s more, a Sportsnet Super Suite pass allows patrons to beat the queues of getting into Melbourne Park by giving them access to the VIP Partner and Hospitality Entrance at Garden Square. Lastly, a Sportsnet Super Suite pass also acts as a ground pass, so patrons are still able to enjoy the festivities of Melbourne Park and the intimacy of the matches being played on the outdoor show courts and practice courts.
The behind glass area of the suite is appointed with tables, chairs and couches that allow patrons to relax and enjoy a light meal and drink (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are available to purchase) from the suite’s own pop-up cafe and cash bar. The court-facing wall of the lounge is made entirely out of glass too, so patrons won’t miss a moment of action of some of the tournament’s most intriguing matches. In fact, Nick Kyrgios is renowned for preferring to play on John Cain Arena (featuring his first three matches in 2020), so there will no doubt be plenty of action if he’s on court!
The Super Suite’s inside arena area of the lounge contains two rows of padded, cinema-like seats that allow patrons to enjoy the electric atmosphere of John Cain Arena in absolute comfort – and not to mention one of the best seats in the house!
