Common Wealth Games tickets from June 1, start at Rs 50

NEW DELHI: All the venues may still not be ready but the organizing committee (OC) is gearing up to sell tickets for the Commonwealth Games from June 1. The cheapest ticket will be priced at Rs 50.

“Around 1.7 million tickets will be sold for the Games starting from October 3. These tickets will initially be available only from a dedicated call centre, the Commonwealth Games 2010 website and a few select outlets,” OC chairman Suresh Kalmadi told TOI on Thursday.

However, the 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. “These tickets will be available till the start of each event,” Kalmadi said.

OC officials refused to reveal the different price slabs for the remaining tickets. However, sources said 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.
