Update: Turin Event Tickets

My editorial assistant is very thorough and I had her look into the status of purchasing Olympic Event tickets in the U.S. (through CoSport - the official seller here). This is what she found:

Many event tickets have sold since I last checked, and many more events are completely sold out at all ticket price levels (certain competitions for speedskating, snowboarding, skiing, figure skating). I suppose it is more important for you to know what IS still available:
  • opening and closing ceremonies (only most expensive level: $1,260 for opening, $910 for closing)
  • freestyle skiing
  • figure skating pairs short program
  • figure skating men's short program
  • the figure skating gala (towards end of competition)
  • women's snowboarding
  • biathlon
  • women's speed skating
  • women's downhill skiing
  • figure skating
  • ice dance competition
  • cross-country skiing
  • curling
  • women's ice hockey quaterfinals, semifinals (available in the most expensive ticket level)
Another way of looking at this: out of the Type I (more coveted) tickets available on CoSport, 50 events have sold out completely (out of 86 events); for Type II tickets on CoSport, 34 events out of 89 have sold out.

Choosing this place as my wedding reception was the best choice we made in our entire wedding planning! Initially I was wary of over the top sounding ceremony. However I can assure you this is not the case with this place.
