Glasgow 2014 Delighted with ‘enthusiastic’ Response to Ticket Launch
August 19, 2013
The organisers of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games are ‘delighted’ at the ‘enthusiastic’ response to the million tickets that went on sale today.
The competition involves 71 nations competing in 17 sports and ticket applicants have four weeks to try and place their orders.
Early troubles occurred due to the heavy use of the ticketing website but a Glasgow 2014 spokesman has said they are pleased with the response from the public.
A statement read: “We’ve been really delighted with the enthusiastic response to the first day of Glasgow 2014’s Ticketing Programme. We have already processed many thousands of applications through our website and continue to do so as quickly as possible. We appreciate the patience shown by customers during periods of high demand.
“But this is not a sprint – everyone has until Sept 16 to make their choices and get their applications in and we encourage everyone to get involved in Scotland’s biggest-ever festival of world-class sport.”
The competition runs from July 23- August 3, 2014.
