Ticket Sale Update

After just a few weeks of ticket sales for the 2010 Arctic Winter Games organizers are encouraged by the interest this milestone has generated in the community.
Residents have known the Games were coming, and have likely been planning to attend this international celebration for some time, says Ticket Chair Heidi Yang, but there’s a thrill that comes from actually holding the tickets in your hands.
Yang says it’s this thrill many people are hoping to bring to the holidays, by loading up at the box office this Christmas. She says the Games guarantee opportunities for unique family fun, while still keeping ticket prices reasonable.
“Games tickets make a perfect Christmas gift, and with the cost of daily sports passes comparable to the cost of a trip to the movies we’re seeing a lot of tickets purchased as family stocking stuffers - or even as gifts for teachers, coaches or colleagues,” Yang says.
She says price was a big factor when finalizing the ticket plan. The committee did considerable research to ensure ticket prices weren’t a barrier for anyone wishing to attend the Games. The result is families embracing the Games, and are making plans to share in the sports and cultures of the circumpolar North.
Even the four SPECTACULAR cultural events held during the Games are priced at less than $50 each. Tickets for the Games’ Opening and Closing Ceremonies have been the biggest sellers to-date, with those for Thursday & Friday’s Cultural Galas not far behind.
Yang says it’s the social interaction and cultural exhibition between contingents that reflects the true uniqueness of these Games, and that is most evident during ceremonies and galas. Assigned seating is in place for each of these dynamic events, with a limited number of tickets available for each.
The Arctic Winter Games international committee requires some tickets to be held back for international guests, further limiting the number of tickets available to the general public. As a result, Yang says those interested in attending should act quickly to avoid disappointment.
