|Buy tickets Universiade|
The Universiade is only 83 days away and the stadiums are almost finished. Indirectly I have also learned that tickets will probably go on sale soon: members of the various national teams can apply till Monday the 23rd of May for extra tickets. After this date, extra tickets will only be handed out at the venues but there will likely not be enough tickets:
"According to the tickets policy, during Games-time, the Organizing Committee (OC) will distribute a number of complementary tickets to the delegations. However, the demand of delegations is likely to be greater than the actual supply of the complementary tickets. To ensure the delegations could purchase the demanding tickets in time, we strongly suggest the delegations submit the attachment of Contractual Client System Account Application Form before 23th May. "
So I think the official ticket sale will start within the next two weeks.
update 11 july 2011: tickets are set to go on sale today
update 28 july 2011: tickets are on sale, but seems only in Chinese. See my other Universiade articles .
The English version of the Universiade website does not show the ticket information yet, but on the Chinese version I read the following:
Contact information for the Ticket Office is:
Ms Tian Yang
Mr Jiexiong Huang
Where to buy tickets?
See this article where you can buy tickets. As far as I know, none of the salespoints are targeted towards foreigners. Your best bet might be one of the China Merchants bank offices on the list.
How do tickets look?
You will get a paper-ticket with information on your seat and which event. See for an example of Universiade ticket here . Tickets for athletics cost 50RMB (regular seat) or 100RMB (best seat). Same for artistic gymnastics.
