The Skinny on U. S. Open Sky Boxes

August 28, 2001, 12:00 AM EDT

If you're not among the folks scuttling clients and employees to hospitality suites at the U. S. Open this week, here's the scoop on how to do so next year--or at least what the other guys are paying. Sky boxes at Arthur Ashe Stadium go for $100,000 and up per year, depending on suite location and size. Companies including PaineWebber and U.S. Open sponsors and partners Lincoln, MassMutual, JP Morgan Chase, CBS and USA Networks all have them, and many boxes are likely to open up for next year. When the stadium was built in 1997, corporations and individuals leasing luxury suites were given the option of a three-, four- or five-year lease. Most chose five, which means many of the suites will be up for renewal after this year's Open. Those suites not renewed for 2002 will go to corporations or individuals on the stadium's lengthy wait list.
