On Saturday, November 7th, Canadians will have first crack at purchasing Olympic victory ceremony tickets as part of the third and final major release of tickets to the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
The tickets starting at $22 will be available on a first-come, first-served basis to Canadian residents as part of this final ticket release which begins at 10am (Pacific Time).
The nightly victory ceremonies at BC Place will include a live music concert from some of the country’s top musicians.
“The nightly victory ceremony tickets will be an inspirational and affordable chance to share in the celebration surrounding Canada’s Games in 2010,” said Caley Denton, vice president, ticketing and consumer marketing for the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC). “Along with watching history in the making at the medal ceremonies, these tickets also give spectators access to great entertainment.”
The indoor ceremonies, which last just over two hours, will be held on 12 nights and will be sponsored each night by a province or territory. The lineup of bands and solo performers, as well as the schedule of provincial and territorial nights, will be released later this year by VANOC.
There will also be a live video feed of the medal presentations at Whistler Medals Plaza shown at BC Place and vice versa so audiences in both locations can celebrate these history making moments together at the same time.
VANOC reminds ticket purchases that to ensure fair and equitable access to as many Canadians as possible, ticket customers visiting www.vancouver2010.com starting on Saturday, November 7 may be directed to a virtual waiting room, where they will be randomly selected to enter the Vancouver 2010 ticketing website. Once signed into their account, customers will be able to purchase up to four separate events, with a limit of either four or eight tickets per event. If a customer wants to order more than the limit of four events, they will need to start a new transaction. Visa is the only payment accepted.
