Olympic Games: Just the ticket for Sydney
Tuesday 30 November 1999
Sandy Hollway, the chief executive of the Sydney Organising Committee, said more than 435,000 tickets worth about pounds 12m had been bought by Australians in the delayed second-round offer. Over half of the 102,243 people who applied for second-round tickets got everything they wanted, he said. The organisers have made about pounds 58m from the 1.5m tickets sold in the first-round ballot and expect another pounds 10m from the 200,000 seats added to the public offer from premium packages.
