Since its launch last week, the opening ceremony tickets have been selling like hot cakes at the Point Cruz Telekom branch.
Games Organizing Committee (GOC) ticketing Revenue Supervisor Mike Vereseni said ticket sales for the Pacific Games opening ceremony set for November 19th are the most purchased ticket type, as more people who visited their booth came in only to query and buy it.
He said tickets for the opening and closing ceremonies are limited.
“So, to avoid disappointment, don’t delay or wait until the last minute.
“Family members and individuals who intend to purchase tickets should do so earlier.
“We forecast that opening ceremony tickets will run out soon based on the purchase rate and demand,” he said.
He said tickets for general admissions, packages, Sports City, Fantastic Friday, and Super Saturday are also on sale and expected to be picked up as we near the games.
He also clarifies that no tickets will be sold in the provincial centers, and all tickets are non-refundable. Those who intend to pre-book tickets are advised to contact the ticketing team in advance.
The GOC revenue supervisor adds that for now only Telekom Point Cruz is the selling point, and as of next week, their team will set up booths in other parts of the city.
The tickets have security features to avoid being duplicated or scammed.
Opening and closing ceremony tickets cost $200 for each event. A package ticket for the whole two-week event costs $1000 per head, meaning you can watch all the games from the start-up matches up to the finals (excluding the opening and closing ceremonies). The Sports City ticket package costs $500, and you can watch all competitions hosted at the National Stadium, Aquatic Center, and Friendship Hall.
Venues that are non-ticketed where you can watch all sports games for free are DC Park, Honiara City Council Sport Precinct, Golf Club, and the Hockey Pitch.
