Official Resale Market
The resale of tickets to the French Open is against the law unless the reseller is officially authorised.
As with our recommended sellers above here is the Number 1 website for French Open tickets. These are the only way to get tickets officially and safe.
Viagogo is the biggest and safest way to get the tickets so please use them for all your French Open tickets.
Buying Tickets Outside the Event
As the resale of tickets to the French Open is illegal it is always hard to find tickets outside. However recently there has been an influx of local street ticket vendors trying to get in on the market. With this illegal trade it is often difficult to determine if the tickets are genuine and more important will gain you access to the event.
I personally would not risk give hundreds of Euros to these sellers as if there is any problems then the chances of getting a refund are very slim. The police are always present at the French Open so the sellers will not make it obvious that they are selling tickets but they will always be around.
We at SafeTennisTickets.com would think twice before making a transaction for this event on the street, my advice would be to purchase the tickets in the days prior to the event.
If there is no other option than to purchase tickets outside then we recommend that you ask the seller to accompany you to the event doors.
Ticket Selling Law
Law No. 2012-348 of 12 March 2012 protects spectators against the resale of tickets by any company or person who has not been licensed by the organisers. The application of this law (article 313-6-2 of the French penal code) makes it forbidden to habitually re-sell tickets for events without the express authorisation of the organisers.
Failure to respect article 313-6-2 of the French penal code is punishable by a fine of €15,000. This is increased to €30,000 in the case of repeat offenders.
