Ticket sales have exceeded expectations. POCOG’s goal was to sell 80% of available tickets. They exceeded that by 120% when the Games opened.
I have bought tickets to a few events, but POCOG has started allowing those with credentials to attend for free. If a ticket holder arrives, we need to find another empty seat. But so far it has worked out that I haven’t had to move.
I have attended curling and ice hockey this way. I didn’t attend the events I bought tickets for, but am sure someone else claimed my seat, so I consider it a wash.
Admittedly, it has been a bit slow with my volunteer shifts, so this is another nice peek for the volunteers.
