Winter Olympics Off To A Slow Start

The winter Olympics in Truing begin in less than 150 days. However, less than half of the tickets to this event have been sold.

Out of 460,000 tickets sold, only 100,000 have gone directly to the public. The rest have been sold/given to sponsors, corporations, sports federations, broadcasters, national Olympic committees and ticketing agencies.

Giorgio Lauretta, head of ticketing, said:

"I would have liked to have sold more, but our advertising so far has been quite weak".
