Glasgow 2014 organizers experiencing unprecedented demand for tickets

The chiefs of Glasgow 2014 chiefs apologized for all the difficulties and delays as sports fans tried to snap up the newest release of tickets that include all seventeen sports as well as the opening and closing ceremonies. The organizers of the 2014 Commonwealth Games have reported that they are seeing unprecedented demand for tickets.

According to reports, a spokesperson told that today's general ticket sale has garnered unprecedented demand and with this the call centre and website is understandably very busy and there are queues in place to manage this. He added that they would prefer to assure customers that they are processing ticket sales as fast as they could and advise customers to keep trying. They also thanked everyone for their patience and also apologized to those who have experienced negative issues.

The Commonwealth Games organizers stated that some people have experienced errors in the ticket purchase process. Sports fans, who earlier missed on tickets opportunities, have been given another chance on first come first serve basis.

The 100000 extra tickets for the event became available since the final arrangements for spectator seating and venue layouts are made, said the chief of the games. Last year, around 2.3 million applications were made for the primary 1 million tickets issued previous year, with aquatics, cycling and athletics proving to be the hottest.
David Grevemberg, the Glasgow 2014 chief executive told that they are very delighted that it means even more people would get the scope to be part of the Games and experience live world class sporting action in Glasgow.
