Impressive premiere for the Rio tickets!

More than 220,000 tickets for Rio 2016 Olympic Games were sold on Thursday and Friday (21-22 January) as organisers put the final major batch on sale to residents of Brazil. About 500,000 tickets became available and the demand was intense, with peaks of more than 3,000 transactions per minute as fans rushed to secure seats.

The most sought-after tickets were for athletics, swimming, football, handball, the opening and closing ceremonies, basketball, volleyball, beach volleyball, tennis, judo and the three gymnastics disciplines (artistic, rhythmic and trampoline).
