Hangzhou, China, October 15, 2020: Ticket sales for the Olympic Council of Asia’s 19th Asian Games Hangzhou 2022 will start in 2021, organisers announced at a press conference here on Wednesday, October 14.
Determined to host a ‘smart’ Asian Games, the Hangzhou 2022 Organising Committee HAGOC explained that technologies including big data and block chain would be applied in the ticket sales, both on the official website of HAGOC and offline, for the convenience of the public.
"The ticket price will be reasonable to attract more people, especially teenagers, to experience the competitions and activities of the Asian Games," said an official, quoted by Xinhua News.
The tickets will not only mean access to the sports competitions but also provide convenience for holders in buying licensed products, transportation, accommodation, travel and themed activities, as HAGOC plans.
The Hangzhou Asian Games will be held from September 10-25, 2022 and will feature around 10,000 athletes in 40 sports.
Hangzhou is the capital city of Zhejiang province in eastern China.
