Commonwealth Games (CWG) Tickets available and selling from June 1 from Rs. 50
“Around 1.7 million tickets will be sold for the Games starting from October 3. These tickets be initially available only from a dedicated call centre, the Commonwealth Games 2010 website and a few select outlets,”. OC is also planning to make the tickets available in more than 50 outlets of Central Bank and Hero Honda within 10-15 days of the launch of ticket sale.
For those hoping to catch the action live at the stadia, the low pricing of tickets is an added incentive.
OC officials refused to reveal the different price slabs for the remaining tickets. As per information they would be available in four slabs, with options for group bookings. The ticket prices would also be different for the various sporting events, with the opening and closing ceremonies at a separate price slab altogether.
OC sources said the maximum demand is expected to be for the opening and closing ceremonies, billed as a cultural extravaganza. Both ceremonies will take place at the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium, which has a seating capacity of 64,000 spectators.
Ticket sales, though, are primarily expected to be through the call centre set up specifically for the purpose. The tickets bought online by spectators would be changed to physical tickets at the venue before the event.
At present, the OC is expecting around 1 lakh international tourists. The number of domestic tourists is expected to also go up in October for the Commonwealth Games.
