The Eisenhower Cup has raised more than $500,000 in total for local charities since it debuted in 2018 and has blossomed into a fan-favorite Indian Wells tradition, taking place on the eve before main draw play begins at the BNP Paribas Open each year.

Sabalenka and Fritz took the title last year in the first-ever mixed doubles Eisenhower Cup, defeating Swiatek and Hurkacz in the final in front of an energetic crowd of nearly 5,000 fans.

The event features a fast-paced, energetic Tie Break Tens format consisting of first to ten-point tie break matches. The 2024 event will be an eight-team single elimination draw, with a total of seven matches being held over the course of the evening.

The 2024 Eisenhower Cup will begin at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, March 5 with gates opening to Stadium 2 at 5:30pm.

Tickets are now on sale starting at $50 with net proceeds being donated to local charities. Eisenhower Cup ticket holders will also be able to access the grounds early and gain admission to BNP Paribas Open qualifying matches taking place all day before the evening event.
