February 19, 2009 05:02 PM

The USTA announced today that a limited number of tickets for the 2009 Davis Cup by BNP Paribas first round tie between the United States and Switzerland at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex Arena in Birmingham, Ala., March 6-8 have been released and will be available for public sale starting Friday, Feb. 20 at 10 a.m. CST.

Tickets will be sold as a three-day series with prices ranging from $60 to $500, and can be purchased online by visiting USTA.com or ticketmaster.com, by phone at 888-484-8782, or in person at the BJCC Box Office or any other Ticketmaster outlet location. All ticket categories are available but quantities are limited and are available on a first-come first-serve basis.

The best-of-five match series begins Friday, March 6, with two singles matches, featuring each country’s No. 1 player against the other country’s No. 2 player. Saturday’s schedule features the pivotal doubles match. The final day of play on Sunday will feature two “reverse singles” matches, when the No. 1 players square off followed by the No. 2 players meeting each other in the final match.

This will be the first Davis Cup tie ever played in Alabama, making it the 33rd state to host the prestigious competition. It also will be the first major professional tennis event in Birmingham since the city hosted the 1994 U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championships.

Founded in 1900, Davis Cup is the world’s largest annual international team competition. The USTA organizes, stages and promotes all Davis Cup events in the U.S. Wilson is the official ball of the U.S. Davis Cup team.
