People who were able to get some of the tickets they wanted will be granted access on Wednesday, before all applicants are given assess on Saturday evening. 

Any tickets remaining will be put on general sale.

The sports with the best availability are reported to be rugby sevens, badminton, hockey, table tennis, squash, bowls, and weightlifting. There are also limited tickets for some athletics, boxing and rhythmic gymnastics sessions.

Tickets will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis on the official website or ticketing hotline.

There were 2.3 million requests for up to one million tickets for the first batch released. 

Ty Speer, deputy chief executive of Glasgow 2014, said: “We’re all set for this exciting new phase of ticketing during which there may be periods of high demand as people select and buy their sports and sessions.

“At these times we’d appreciate the patience of all customers. We will be working hard to process all orders as quickly as possible.”
