Fans can now visit  bmwchampionship.com to get  tickets to the 2022 BMW Championship, a part of the PGA’s FedExCup Playoffs,  slated for  August 16-21, 2022.

In addition to a  holiday ticket package, grounds, upgraded Trophy Club, 1901 Club and Green Coat Club tickets are currently available. Corporate hospitality options are also offered.

“Our most flexible ticket option is Any-Day Grounds tickets, and they will not be available after the end of December,” said Vince Pellegrino, Western Golf Association senior vice president of tournaments. “There’s a tremendous amount of excitement for our first visit to Delaware, and we recommend that anyone planning to attend the 2022 BMW Championship purchase their tickets early.”

All proceeds from the BMW Championship benefit the Evans Scholars Foundation and its mission of awarding full tuition and housing college scholarships to deserving youth caddies. Since 2007, the event has raised more than $40 million for caddie scholarships.

Exclusive holiday ticket packages for the 2022 BMW Championship are available now through Dec. 31, 2021.

While there are no positions currently available, the WGA is continuing to accept applications for a volunteer waitlist.

The BMW Championship features the top 70 players in the FedExCup standings as they compete for the J.K. Wadley Trophy and a spot in the season-ending TOUR Championship.

The 2022 event will mark the first time the BMW Championship has been held in Delaware and the third time since 2018 that the event has been held on the East Coast. Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills,  MD,  hosted the 2021 BMW Championship, while Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, PA, hosted the 2018 event.

The BMW Championship dates back to 1899 when it debuted as the Western Open, making it the third-oldest tournament on the PGA Tour schedule, behind only the British Open and U.S. Open.

BMW has sponsored the tournament since 2007.
