Extra Glasgow 2018 tickets released as demand surges
A bundle of additional tickets have been released for the Glasgow 2018 European Championships this week due to popular demand for the world-first event.
Extra tickets have been released across all six sports – Aquatics, Cycling, Golf, Gymnastics, Rowing and Triathlon – which will be staged between 2 and 12 August over 12 venues across Glasgow and Scotland.
Tickets went on sale on a first come first served basis last year, with sports fans and families snapping up seats for the biggest sporting event hosted in Scotland since the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
There are tickets for 84 thrilling sessions of sport taking place over 11 days in August, with prices starting at £10 for adults and £5 for under 16s and over 60s.
Those who secure a ticket will see some of the best athletes from 52 nations compete at iconic venues including the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow and the Royal Commonwealth Pool in Edinburgh.
Glasgow 2018 Championships Director Colin Hartley said: “We know that people in Scotland and the UK love their sport and the appetite for international multi-sport events is huge. It’s been fantastic to see such an uptake on tickets so far and with less than 100 days to go until the event gets underway, we would encourages fans to buy now to avoid disappointment.”
Alongside ticketed events, Glasgow 2018 will also stage a number of free events including the Cycling Road Race through the streets of Glasgow, East Dunbartonshire and Stirling, Open Water Swimming at Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park and Mountain Biking at Cathkin Braes.
Glasgow 2018’s vibrant cultural programme, Festival 2018, will also put on hundreds of unmissable performances and family-friendly events in Glasgow’s George Square, Merchant City, Stirling, East Dunbartonshire and Edinburgh.
One million residents, visitors, spectators, athletes and media will be part of the sporting and cultural experience at Glasgow 2018 this summer.
