VANOC releasing ticket details today


Details of the 2010 Olympic ticket program will be made available today (Oct. 11) by the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

According to a study commissioned by VANOC earlier this year, three in four Canadians believe that attending the 2010 Winter Games would be the “the experience of a lifetime.”

The 2010 Olympic Winter Games are perceived to be the premier event ticket for Canadians, scoring the highest of all major sport and entertainment events tested, including the Stanley Cup Finals and the Super Bowl, in terms of overall experience.

"The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games are a global event and will be an experience of a lifetime for everyone who attends," said Dave Cobb, VANOC Executive Vice President, Revenue, Marketing and Communications. "It's been our goal since day one to develop a fair, affordable and accessible Olympic ticketing program and we look forward to sharing the details of the plan this week with Canadians and potential spectators from around the world."

VANOC's announcement on Thursday, Oct. 11 will include the on-sale date for tickets to the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, how and where the public can access tickets, the pricing of the tickets to each event and a flavour of what the public can expect to experience when they attend Vancouver 2010 events.
