2014 Ticket Fix Could Take Days

It could be days before the Commonwealth Games ticketing website is back up and running.

Ticketmaster had to shut the site yesterday - after 2 days of problems, and Glasgow 2014 bosses say they're still not sure what went wrong.

Eager fans have been trying to get their hands on the last 100,000 tickets. At the point the website and phone line were closed, 55,000 tickets had been snapped up. Tickets for diving and swimming are sold out, as are track cycling, mountain biking and triathlon, but there are still tickets for all other events, including the opening and closing ceremonies.

A Glasgow 2014 spokesperson said: "Glasgow 2014 and its Official Ticketing Provider Ticketmaster are today urgently reviewing the performance of the ticketing website with the aim of resolving the issues experienced by some of our customers. Once this review is complete and any measures have been implemented and tested we will be in a position in coming days to advise when ticket sales will be back up and running.

"It is our absolute priority to be able to meet, as soon as possible, the enthusiasm and demand that sports fans have shown for the Final Sprint for tickets and we thank all of our supporters and customers for their patience."
