Tickets for Glasgow 2014 have been made available for people who missed out in the first round of the ballotOctober 11 - Thousands of remaining tickets for Commonwealth Games events are to go on sale next week to those who missed out on initial applications. 

Seats at the rugby sevens, badminton, hockey, table tennis, squash, bowls and weightlifting competitions have the best availability.

Limited tickets also remain for some sessions of athletics, boxing, rhythmic gymnastics and for the Opening and Closing ceremonies.

The remaining tickets for the opening ceremony start at £180, with those remaining for the closing ceremony ranging between £80 and £200.

During the initial four-week window, there were 2.3 million requests for up to one million tickets.

Of the 17 sports on offer, track cycling, diving, swimming, judo, shooting and the 100 metres sprint final were all oversubscribed and needed ballots to select who received tickets.

The second sale will run from Monday October 21 for six days, with the first two set aside for applicants who missed out in the initial ticket sales.

From the Wednesday (October 23), applicants who received some of their requested tickets in the initial period will have the chance to purchase more on a first come, first served basis, with those who received all of their initial application able to join the sale from the Friday.

Any remaining tickets will then be released on general sale at a later date.

"We have been delighted with the phenomenal demand for tickets since the opening of applications, but the message to everyone is there are still great tickets available to experience great sport in Glasgow next summer," said Ty Speer, deputy chief executive of Glasgow 2014.

"Ahead of the exclusive on-sale period, we wanted to give ticket applicants the opportunity to think, plan and get excited about the opportunities that still exist to be part of the UK's next big sporting occasion."
