Reserve Your Tickets For Sochi 2014
Sports fans from the United Kingdom interested in attending the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, will be able to reserve Hotel & Tickets Packages and Tickets & Hospitality Pass Packages beginning Friday, 14 December 2012, at 5:00 PM UK TIME. CoSport, as the Official Hospitality Supplier of Sochi 2014, announced today that fans will be able to log on to www.cosport.com, on that starting date to begin their journey to Sochi.
CoSport recently signed an agreement to become the Official Ticket Agent and Official Hospitality Partner of the British Olympic Association (BOA) and Team GB. CoSport is the only officially licensed provider of hotel, ticket and hospitality packages for the Sochi 2014 Games in the United Kingdom.
Beginning Friday, 14 December 2012, CoSport will also launch an Expression of Interest (EOI) opportunity for individual tickets that will continue through Monday, 7 January 2013. Due to the demand for individual Olympic tickets, the initial stage of the process for sourcing Individual Tickets is set in three steps: the Expression of Interest, the confirmation of availability and the actual purchase. Only when CoSport can confirm there will be enough tickets in the BOA allocation to satisfy a person’s request and the Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee releases ticket prices will the account holder be able to purchase those tickets. It is anticipated the Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee will supply the information needed to confirm which applications can be fulfilled in early February 2013. At that time, they also will provide pricing information, allowing fans to determine what they intend to purchase. This initial expression of interest for individual tickets is non-binding to the CoSport account holder.
While Individual Tickets can be purchased as early as February 2013, it is important to note that the actual tickets will be printed and distributed end of 2013/beginning of 2014. Only at that time will fans know their actual seat assignments.
“An Olympic Winter Games ticket buys you a seat to watch the world’s greatest athletes competing on ice and snow and invites you to explore one of the most interesting and yet unknown regions in Russia,” said Hugh Chambers, Chief Commercial Officer of the BOA. “I am sure every Team GB supporter who attends the Olympic Winter Games in 2014 to cheer on Team GB athletes will be delighted by the hospitality in Sochi as well as by the spectacular snow and scenery up in the mountains of Krasnaya Polyana.”
“The Olympic ticketing process is very different from and much more detailed than buying tickets to a concert, the theatre or any other sporting event. We are delighted to be working with CoSport, the best and most experienced in the world at managing Olympic tickets and hospitality.” added Hugh Chambers.
“We are customer-focused, so our aim is to provide an experience to fans that is on par with the excellence of the Olympic Games,” said Robert Long, President of CoSport. “We understand how to work with customers to ensure a great experience. Serving the Olympic Movement is the core of our business, which is why we are the Official Supplier of the Sochi Organizing Committee and Authorized Ticket Reseller and sponsor of eight National Olympic Committees, providing expertise and revenues to the benefit the Games and the athletes.”
