Last chance to request tickets to GC2018

May 19, 2017 Sports No Comments Email Email

Spectators yet to submit their ticket request for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) have been urged to beat the last minute rush and do so this weekend, before requests close at 11.59pm AEST on Monday, 22 May.

Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation (GOLDOC) Chairman Peter Beattie said the organisation had received a strong response from the public since ticket requests opened on 24 April, but urged those that hadn’t already submitted their request to get in before time runs out.

“We are anticipating a high volume of ticket requests right throughout the day on Monday so we encourage people to make the most of this weekend and not wait until the last minute to submit their request,” Mr Beattie said.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and placing a ticket request gives spectators the very best chance to secure tickets for the most in-demand sports sessions.

“Spectators can submit their ticket request online via any time before 11.59pm AEST on Monday 22 May and no preference will be given to the time of day or date a ticket request is placed.”

GOLDOC CEO Mark Peters urged people to study the GC2018 Competition Events Schedule online in order to plan ahead before submitting their request.

“With a total of 278 competition sessions and over 1,000 hours of world class sporting competition over the course of the 11 days during GC2018, spectators have a wide variety of sports, venues and experiences to choose from,” Mr Peters said.

“We encourage spectators to think broadly about their GC2018 experience and consider all sessions, not just the finals, as all the great athletes have to qualify through the preliminaries.

“We have ensured the ticket request process is as simple as possible and encourage people to make the most of helpful advice included on our website.

“Ticket prices are affordable for people of all ages, with adult tickets starting from as low as $20 and half price children’s tickets from $10.”

Any sessions that have more ticket requests than there is availability will have tickets awarded via a fair and equal draw. The draw is made by computer and processed randomly and KPMG Australia is assisting in reviewing controls in relation this process.
