TORONTO 2015 Pan Am Games sell more than 225,000 tickets already
TORONTO, Dec. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – Ticket sales for the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am Games are off and running, with more than 225,000 tickets already sold.
Thousands of fans are scoring their dream seats for their favourite sports, and many gold-medal competitions are selling out. There is also strong demand for tickets to the Opening Ceremony, which will feature a one-night-only performance by Cirque du Soleil.
More than 6,000 athletes from 41 countries and territories will be competing for gold at the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am Games. Those visiting Ontario for the Games will find welcoming communities, which will reflect the diversity of the Americas. Because Ontario has long been Canada’s top destination for new immigrants, about 50 per cent of its residents are foreign-born citizens, Toronto is among the world’s most diverse cities.
Despite strong demand, there are still tickets to some of the most popular sports, including football (soccer), rugby sevens, basketball, track and field, aquatics and artistic gymnastics. While some of the best gold-medal seats have been snapped up, there are still great seats available.
