Approximately 600,000 tickets across more than 160 sessions for Ashgabat 2017 will be available for public sale.
Like other multi-sport Games, some seats will be available to people attending the Games in a professional capacity. Some of these groups include media, National Olympic Committees, and sponsors.
There will also be seats that will be unavailable because of obstructions due to broadcast equipment or to ensure that athletes, coaches, officials and broadcasters have enough space available in and around the field of play to compete or conduct themselves safely.
Tickets will be available for sales on a first-come, first-served basis in our official City Box Offices in summer 2017 and in Venue Box Offices Offices during Games time.
Exact sales locations and working hours will be released closer to the sales launch date.
