Tickets for SEA Games going fast

Tickets for the South-east Asia (SEA) Games opening ceremony on June 5 are almost all snapped up.

On the sidelines of the unveiling ceremony of Singapore Athletics' new identity and logo yesterday, Singapore SEA Games Organising Committee (Singsoc) exco chairman Lim Teck Yin said: "The ticket sales for opening ceremony are practically sold out. We've got only a few left.

"For some sports like fencing, sales are doing very well and tickets are almost sold out. Across the range, there are those which are sold out and those which still need a boost."

Half of the 36 sports, including athletics, will be free to spectators, while football, swimming and the rest are ticketed events.

A check with Sport Singapore revealed tickets for swimming, gymnastics, badminton, diving and water polo are in high demand, while cuesports and equestrian have already sold 70 per cent of tickets.
