In advance of tickets going on sale on 19 August, Glasgow 2014 has released key information to help the people of Glasgow, Scotland and the Commonwealth prepare to apply for tickets for the XX Commonwealth Games.
In addition to key pricing information, an outline calendar of events has been released.
Everyone can be part of the Games. Around 1 million tickets will be up for grabs and tickets for all sports start at just £15 for adults (inclusive of public transport in Glasgow too), with half-price tickets available for all sports for Under 16s and Over 60s. We aim to be the friendliest of family-friendly Games: the first Commonwealth Games to offer dedicated children's tickets.
The first phase of ticket sales will be open from 19 August to 16 September.
Applying for tickets is simple – and being able to pay by cheque as well as card, and by post as well as online, keeps it accessible. They’ll also ensure all customers receive e-mail ticket summaries before payment is taken.
