⛳ :ryder_cup_2023: The Ryder Cup 2023 - Marco Simone, Italy

Didn’t see that coming tbh.

You lot have until end of March to sign up as volunteers & get to see half of each day for free

I have been informed via unofficial channels that we will know if we have been accepted as volunteers on 12th May.

Seems my boss & FB friend from last 2 RC’s is already part of the team deciding who is in.

I’m doomed then :roll_eyes:

The "Volunteer Management team have already been told they are in.
So my old boss is in…

IF you get in you will have to pay 100 Euros for your “volunteer role” but then in return I get this

Why 100 chips? Because a lot of people think they can volunteer get accepted the sell their kit & access. Over 100 did it in Paris. Not this time.

SRSLY? I’m broke but that would be the best 100 chips I will spend

Oh, and IF I get in, I can buy someone a ticket. Just saying…

12th May is notification day

The 1st batch of tickets sold out quicker than Glasto.

Now the "All inclusive packages are on offer (ex flights obv)

3500 Euros to stay at a Best Western? With tickets and transfers?

Inserts Smug Grin and keeps fingers crossed

That I will be fit enough to make it round for 6 days

All those promo events wasted.

Mate’s ticket booked & paid for.

In 100 days a completely not fit for purpose me will be standing in front of THIS and making sure you see wonderful images of the whole malarky


It is only 2 months away! I land in Rome on 24th Sept!
Fitness wise after my “Health Spa week” I am a lot behind what I would like to be but actually thanks to the non smoking I am getting kms in and hopefully should make it round the course twice a day!

So in Italy, they have an anti-black market system where you have to assign a ticket to the person who is actually using it - ie ID checks on entry.

Gen Z Interns and the newbies in the Organising office obviously went full App/Tech based for ticketing (and tbh everything else so far). So spent 2.5 HOURS on a video call yesterday with my travelling Buddy to get the assignment done and yep, 6 hours later his tickets were downloaded into his Digital Wallet (wtf is that?)

We may have been the lucky ones - so far on our volunteer portal looks like anyone with an IPhone is in trouble and the much vaunted AI chat bot has been on the beach somewhere and their email is doing the old Maier Daemon undeliverable game.

And this is before they try and move 40,000 people through one security (albeit Airport sized) scanning entry point on the Friday morning of the event in the 30 minutes before Tee Off - That one seems to be Italian Genius not contemplating the actual scale sort of “It’s Italy, nobody gets up at 5am for anything”…


A warm welcome to Jose Maria Olazabel, returning as a Vice Captain in Rome…

Just so I can pap him again I guess
