VANOC, the Vancouver Games Organizing Committee, announced last week that tickets to the 2010 Olympic Winter Games will go on sale in just little less than a year from now, on October 11, 2008. Approximately 1.6 million tickets will be available, with 100,000 tickets priced at $25. Half of all tickets are priced at $100 or less and Opening and Closing Ceremonies tickets will range from $175 to $1’100. Together with its partners, VANOC is also following through on its bid commitment to purchase and distribute 50,000 tickets to the Olympic and Paralympic events to those who would not otherwise have the means to attend. The ticket buying process will be staged in phases and will also include lotteries to fairly distribute tickets to Olympic events where the demand for tickets exceeds the supply.
