Is This the Most Expensive Ticket in the World? - Wimbledon Men's Final Tickets Reach $50,000 on Ticket Marketplace

GENEVA, Switzerland, July 5, 2013 /CNW/ - Ahead of the Semi-Finals, ticket prices for the Wimbledon Men's Final have rocketed to a record $50,000 for a pair.

viagogo spokesman Steve Roest said: "The extraordinary prices for Men's Finals tickets show just how important this result is to the British: Wimbledon is one of the crown jewels of the sporting calendar and the British public has been waiting for a home Champion for 77 years.

"Andy Murray is now just two games from the Wimbledon title and with his chances of victory stronger than ever, more and more people are considering paying five figure sums to witness British sporting history."

So, if you're a tennis fan and you have a spare $50,000 what can you get for your money?

1) Two guaranteed Centre Court tickets to the Wimbledon Championships Men's Final   

2) More than 9 tons of strawberries[1] - that's enough to cover 2.5 tennis  courts   

3) 330 of Murray's tennis racquets[2], which laid end to end would make a line more than 240 yards long   

4) 39,600 used Wimbledon tennis balls[3]   

5) 3,300 Wimbledon umbrellas[4]- an important piece of equipment for any outdoor event in Britain

Wimbledon tickets are still available on up to the last minute and with a 100% guarantee that you will get the ticket you purchased in time for the event.
