We have previously pointed out how you can use your Emirates Skywards miles for tickets to football matches: including games at Arsenal, Real Madrid, PSG and the English FA Cup.
Emirates sponsorship of sports also extends to the French Open tennis tournament. As a result, you can currently “buy” tickets to the French Open this May/June for as little as 7,000 Emirates Skywards miles.
Tickets are available at the following prices:
- 22-26 May, 28 May: 7000 miles (40,000 for VIP tickets)
- 27 May to 2 June (save for 28 May): 15,000 miles (65,000 VIP)
- 3 June: 20,000 miles (70,000 VIP)
- 4 June: 25,000 miles (80,000 VIP)
- 5 June: 30,000 miles (90,000 VIP)
Tickets are of course subject to availability, and the lower end tickets in particular seem to be very limited in availability.
