Posted

Tournament officials announced Thursday that Friday and Saturday’s general parking lot passes for THE PLAYERS are sold out.

According to THE PLAYERS, the number of Friday and Saturday passes sold has reached capacity and equals the total number of spots in the general lot, so all sold parking passes will be honored, but no additional passes will be sold at this time.

Fans are reminded to seek alternative transportation for Friday and Saturday, including Uber, bike, golf cart, downtown shuttles or a private parking lot in the local area. Thursday and Sunday parking passes are still available and can be purchased at THEPLAYERS.com/parking.

Information about alternative modes of transportation can be found at THEPLAYERS.com/parking, and tickets for THE PLAYERS are still available and can be purchased at THEPLAYERS.com/tickets.
