EXCLUSIVE | As we are fully aware by now, 2020 has not been a great year if you are a keen travelling sports fan looking to watch live sport. With international pathways shut and in some cases local competitions cancelled, it hasn’t been a fans dream. 


But thanks to DraftKings, a chance to win two court side seating tickets to the 2021 Australian Open are up for grabs in the DraftKings Australian Open Experience! The opportunity to watch the World’s best Tennis players battling it out courtside is only experienced by the select few. This prize is amazing! 


The Prize is of the following:


The Player who wins first place in the Contest will receive one (1) travel prize for each of the winner and up to one (1) companion (companion must be aged 18 years or older), to be nominated by the prize winner and approved by DraftKings in its sole and absolute discretion).
