2.3 Million Request Glasgow 2014 Tickets

September 17, 2013

Over 2.3 million people have requested tickets for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow next year after four weeks of the request window being open.

The applications were made for only one million Glasgow 2014 tickets and organisers thanked the public for their “amazing response and interest” in the event.

Ty Speer, order Deputy Chief Executive of Glasgow 2014, said: “There has been incredible demand for tickets and early indications suggest that Glasgow 2014 is shaping up to be a truly historic occasion.  There has been a lot of competition for tickets and some sports have been heavily oversubscribed.

“We would like to thank everyone for their support and their interest in buying tickets and we will now begin the process of working through the applications.”

Speer continued: “The system has worked well and has coped with the sometimes extremely high demand and we would like to thank our official ticketing services provider Ticketmaster for ensuring the process ran smoothly.

“We look forward to getting in touch with people at the end of the month with news of their application.”

The ticketing campaign was led by Olympic and Commonwealth medallists Sir Chris Hoy, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Tom Daley, Nicola Adams and Michael Jamieson.
