Tickets for the upcoming 2017 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games (AIMAG) in Ashgabat are due to go on sale across host country Turkmenistan today.
With more than 700,000 tickets available for more than 220 sessions, spectators will be able to watch the best athletes from Asia and Oceania compete from September 16 to 27 and across 21 sports.
All sessions, including preliminary rounds and medal events, can be found on the sport competition schedule, which the public can reference to choose the events they want to attend.
To encourage spectators to enjoy the experience of live sports taking place in Ashgabat, the Executive Committee have confirmed that tickets for sport sessions will be priced at 7TMT (£1.53/$2/€1.71) and 10TMT (£2.18/$2.86/€2.44) for adults and children under 14 will be free.
Tickets for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, being held on September 17 and 27 respectively in the newly-constructed Ashgabat Olympic Stadium, are available in four pricing categories, ranging from 50TMT (£10.92/$14.29/€12.19) to 500TMT (£109.23/$142.86/€121.81).
"Ashgabat 2017 will be a special event for the people of Turkmenistan, and we want as many people as possible to take up this unique opportunity to watch international sports and to support our athletes," Dayanch Gulgeldiyev, chairman of the fifth AIMAG Executive Committee, said.
Tickets will be sold on a first-come first-serve basis across eight locations in the city and a further six more across all other regions, offering the opportunity to all Turkmen people to visit the state-of-the-art Ashgabat Olympic Complex.
All tickets will be nominal and will be sold upon presentation of a valid passport or ID card.
Ashgabat 2017 is set to feature 21 sports across 15 venues over 12 days of competition.
Turkmenistan’s capital was awarded the Games by the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) in 2010.
The fifth AIMAG Executive Committee will organise and run the Games in cooperation with the OCA.
