MOSCOW, January 21 (Itar-Tass) — The Sochi-2014 Organising Committee did not confirm the information published in the media, that the most cheep ticket to the Games would cost 1,000 roubles, and the most expensive one – 40,000.
“We shall start selling tickets to the XXII Winter Olympic Games of 2014 in Sochi in February of 2013. The Organising Committee will announce regulations and conditions for buying the tickets simultaneously with beginning of selling the tickets,” the Organising Committee’s press service told Itar-Tass on Monday.
The Izvestia daily published information that tickets to the Olympic Games in Sochi would cost between one and forty thousand roubles. The newspaper said the Organising Committee hoped to earn six billion roubles in tickets.
“Prices for tickets to the XXII Olympic and the XI Paralympic Winter Games of 2014 in Sochi will be comparable for prices of tickets to leading Russia and international events. Most tickets would be available in the following price ranges – 1,000, 1,500, 2,500 and 3,000 roubles,” the Organising Committee’s press release reads.
On the first days of the New Year, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin signed a law implementing an administrative responsibility for individuals and companies for fraud with tickets to the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Sochi in 2014.
The document reads that prices for tickets are set by the International Olympic Committee and the International Paralympic Committee respectively. The government of the Russian Federation, in its turn, only offers regulations for selling the tickets.
The law introduces administrative responsibility for individuals and companies who violate the regulations and offers a shorter, 10-days’, term for court proceedings of the administrative cases.
