I didn't go. I tried - and failed a few yrs ago. Here is the sad saga:
I emailed them months in advance - I believe it was Oct (tournament is in late Feb - I like to make arrangements early). They said 'internet tickets won't go on sale until some day in early Jan. So on the day in question I log in - still not for sale. Log in later in the day and they're on sale - but already only tickets for the 1st two days are available; the rest of the days were already sold out. I was hoping to buy a package for the whole week - NFW I'm flying that far for two days of early rounds. I email them. They admit most of the tickets only go on sale at the Box Office in Dubai.
I still want to go to the region - the last one on my bucket list. Thinking about Doha or the exo around New Years. Or I'll go to the Formula 1 race in Abu Dhabi.
Good luck. If you have better luck, please post!
