Organisers of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games are creating a special opportunity for sports fans who did not secure any Games tickets in the application phase to buy tickets in an exclusive on sale window.
Before tickets go on general public sale, there will be an exclusive opportunity for all existing ticketing applicants to purchase any remaining public tickets. All tickets will be immediately available for sale on a first-come, first-served basis on the official Glasgow 2014 Ticketing website, https://tickets.glasgow2014.com
The on sale period will run from Monday, 21 October to Saturday, 26- October, with the first two days – Monday 21st and Tuesday 22nd – dedicated exclusively to those who received no tickets from their application.
From Wednesday 23 October applicants who received some of their requested tickets in the application period will also be able to access the Ticketing website. On Friday 25 and Saturday 26. October everyone who applied for tickets will have an exclusive second chance to top-up their ticket account before all remaining tickets go on general public sale.
All those who participated in the application process will be informed by email or letter within the next few days of this exciting opportunity – and how and when the exclusive on sale period is available to them.
A bumper 2.3million requests were made for up to one million tickets in the application phase of the Glasgow 2014 Ticketing Programme. This overwhelming demand for tickets confirms Glasgow 2014 as one of the most popular events in Scotland’s history with 17 sports on offer across 11 days of elite competition, ensuring 4500 Commonwealth athletes competing for Gold and glory in Glasgow will do so in packed stadia.
Ty Speer, Deputy Chief Executive of Glasgow 2014 said:
“I’m delighted we’re now able to offer this exclusive on sale period to those who have already demonstrated their commitment and enthusiasm for Glasgow 2014 through their applications for tickets.
“There is still a wealth of opportunities to experience world-class competition across a wide range of sports. For everyone who wants to be part of the UK’s next big sporting festival this is the best opportunity to secure tickets.
”Over the next few days we will be contacting everyone individually to let them know about this exclusive opportunity and what it means for them as well as thank them for their incredible support of Glasgow 2014 so far.”
