Rio organizers announce basics on tickets

Posted: Updated:

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) - Organizers have announced the basic outline of ticket prices for the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympics.


Organizers said Tuesday that 7.5 million tickets will be issued for the Rio Games. Half of them - 3.8 million - will be priced under $30. Organizers said the cheapest ticket will be about $20.


The most expensive ticket to the Games will be 4,600 Brazilian reals (about $2,000) for the opening ceremony.


Spokesman Mario Andrada issued a reminder that "many of the events will be seen for free, walking around the Copacabana beach area" or the Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon area where rowing events will be held.
