SPORTING fanatics have been given one last chance to snap up tickets to next year’s Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, with the final major release set to go on sale to the general public today.
The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation (GOLDOC) will release the last 300,000 tickets to the general public from 12pm Queensland time on Monday (1pm AEDT).
Along with 200,000 tickets that had previously been set aside for the final release, organisers have managed to free up an extra 100,000 seats after completing venue seating plans, sight lines and camera positions.

The additional 100,000 tickets also include those returned from Commonwealth Games partners and associations.
This means there are still tens-of-thousands of seats to be snapped up in the Opening and Closing ceremonies, as well as tickets to some of the most sought-after events that have been oversubscribed since the ticket request phase closed in May.
In all, the additional tickets will be available for 21 of the 23 sporting events, including the Swimming, Diving, Track Cycling, Gymnastics, Beach Volleyball, Netball, Athletics and Wrestling.
The ticket allocation for many of these sessions had previously been exhausted.

Tickets will be offered on a “first in, first served” basis through www.gc2018.com/tickets, so fans are being urged to get in quick to avoid disappointment.
Prices will start from $20 for adults and $10 for children with each ticket including free public transport on the day.
The games will be held during the 2018 Easter school holidays, from April 4 to April 15.
