Volunteers, Staff Getting Unsold Event Tickets in Pyeongchang

Thursday, February 08, 2018

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) — The Pyeongchang Organizing Committee is offering volunteers and staff unsold tickets for Thursday's curling and ski jumping events.

Committee manager Ji Young Lee says 94 percent of tickets for Thursday's curling events have already been sold. She says the offer of free tickets gives volunteers who are normally working a chance to experience the Olympics in a different way.

Lee didn't immediately have information about tickets sold for Thursday's ski jumping events.

Lee says overall ticket sales were at 77.3 percent for the entire Pyeongchang Olympic schedule as of Monday. She said that's up from 75 percent for the Sochi Olympics at approximately the same time in 2014.
