Celebrities tight-lipped over how they wrangled Wimbledon tickets from sponsors
London, July 10(ANI): Various celebrities present at the Wimbledon final have refused to share how they managed to get the tickets for the showdown between Andy Murray and eventual winner Roger Federer.
A host of celebrities from various fields were spotted at the Wimbledon final, but how such a huge amount of celebrities managed to wangle tickets is still unknown.
The answer was from a variety of sources including the All England Club, corporate sponsors and even the BBC who was the official broadcaster of the tournament.
Celeb's easy path to the final will have exasperated the rain-drenched hordes of fans that queued for hours simply for the right to buy a ground pass to allow them to watch the match on a big screen.
Meanwhile, well-heeled fans paid up to 40,000 pounds for a pair of seats on the black market.
Wimbledon's sponsors such as Evian and Slazenger had invited many of the rich and famous to the men's final.
The BBC in return for a brief television interview with Sue Barker gave actor Matt Smith Two Centre Court seats.
Comedian Walliams and his model wife Lara Stone enjoyed free tickets from Evian. TV presenter Jonathan Ross, meanwhile, received his from sports goods giant Slazenger.
But while many celebrities were happy to say where they sourced their tickets, others were less obliging.
"However he got his tickets is his own business," The Daily Mail quoted Jude Law's assistant, as saying.
While the News International press office said it would not comment on the attendance of Rupert Murdoch, who was there with wife Wendi Deng.
It also remains unclear where Ronnie Wood, his theatre producer girlfriend Sally Humphreys, 34, and Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson obtained their tickets. (ANI)
