From this afternoon (Monday, September 30) applicants will start to find out which world-class sports sessions they’ll be part of next summer. It’s going to be an exciting moment – especially for those who have applied for extremely high-demand sports and sessions where requests outstripped supply and will be allocated as part of a fair draw process.
A bumper 2.3million requests for up to one million tickets were made during the Glasgow 2014 ticketing window. 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.
The fair draw process has been applied to ticket applications for all sessions of Diving, Swimming, Mountain Bike, Track Cycling, Artistic Gymnastic, Judo, Shooting and Triathlon along with individual sessions across the Sports Programme which attracted more requests than available tickets.
Track Cycling in particular saw 25 times more requests than tickets available. The eagerly anticipated 100m final to be held in Hampden Park was also a popular choice with more than 100,000 tickets requested than were available.
All ticket applicants will receive an email or letter within the next few days.
All applicants will also be informed of the exclusive on-sale period when they can buy more tickets before they are released for general public sale.
