With the 2014 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony set for February 7, 2014, the Games in Sochi, Russia, are now officially less than a year away. If you want to be at the Opening Ceremony, or one of the other 15 types of winter events that will take place during the 2014 Games, then mark this Monday, February 11, 2013, in bold letters on your calendar.
The public sale for remaining individual event tickets begins promptly at noon eastern on Monday. This will be a first come, first serve sale, so in order to have the best shot at getting what you are after, don’t be late getting online on Monday. Event tickets start at $22 USD and go up into the hundreds of dollars for more popular events like ice skating and men’s hockey finals. If you are interested in a ticket + hotel package deal, some of those are already available now.
The official website to purchase Olympic tickets and packages depends on your country of residence, but those residing in countries such as the United States, Canada, Great Britain and Australia must use CoSport.com. If you plan to participate in the ticket sale, I recommend registering for an account with CoSport now to avoid any potential delays on Monday. Also, keep in mind that only Visa cards are accepted for official Olympic ticket sales.
