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 October 21 to Saturday October 26, with the first two days – Monday 21st and Tuesday 22nd – dedicated exclusively to those who received no tickets from their application. From Wednesday October 23 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. October 26 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.
Games organisers say that 2.3million requests were made for up to one million tickets in the application phase of the Glasgow 2014 Ticketing Programme, and that this overwhelming demand for tickets confirms Glasgow 2014 as one of the most popular events in Scotland’s history. The Games begin on July 23 featuring 17 sports during 11 days of elite competition.
