Tickets - how, where, when?
It seems I could meet this personally - I arrive at Hong Kong in the middle of November.
With the fact I know nothing about China and chinese how should I go there? It's a chance to see all greats

Phase 3 of ticket sales, open this coming Oct. 25th (incl. badminton event):
Good luck and hope you can purchase the tickets at the booth if you can't reserve/buy them now. I know in the 2008 OG, for the baddy event, there weren't any available tickets for sale at the booth; all through scalpers. And hope you'll enjoy the festivities (and take some pics for us)!

Some Chinese people here?

dassad, yes, looks like it's going to be the same scenario as before in OG 2008. Meaning, only local public will be able to purchase the tix; no online ticket purchase. Or if one is already there and able to purchase the tix from the ticket booth.
Or if you want to contact them through email and find out more infos instead of making an international call, here's the customer service email addie:
Good luck and hopefully you'll get a response soon!

Regarding the ticket, as you know, Guangzhou local people are quite crazy for this sports, I remember the tickets for men's team final were sold out within 1 hour during the first phase of tickets sale. Now I got one ticket for men's double SF already and will try to snatch tickets for team events. And in my worst scenario, I'll buy tickets from scalpers outside the stadium.

Isn't it that famous transcendent fast train we all know about China?))
By the way I will live in Shenzen, not HK. Is there a railway station too?
About tickets I don't understand - if I want right now to reserve some ticket - MS final or so, what should I do, or if it's impossible actually?

There is fast train from Shenzhen to Guangzhou east station every 15 minutes from early morning to middle night. The journey may take 55 minutes.
As for order tickets online, pls kindly read the guide on https://ag.tickets.gz2010.cn/AGTicke...e.html?lang=en
My advice is that you should register immediately, since last time I took two days to receive the feedback of register from the order system. And online order will start at 9:00am on Monday, you should log in the system then.

Though i think most likely they will be bought out by the scalpers/agents and sold with jacked up prices for those foreigners (or even locals) who wish to watch but don't have any tix or haven't bought any tix.
I'd be somewhat surprised if come the week of the event, they are still selling them at ticket booths @ the venue.
in case dassad can't purchase the tix online, maybe you and dassad can contact each other and help him purchase the tix in person since you live in CHN?? i know it won't be cheap. Just a suggestion.
*Btw, abt 55 minutes to travel one way by train?!?!..hmmm..

this online registration is smth I never saw before! They want my passport details?!!
May be bank account and password as well?
Whats the hell they need my passport? Is it a guarantee I will arrive?
I have some people in HK i will ask to help for the while.. The sad is I still dont know exact date of coming to HK
10-22-2010, 03:05 PM #12
But you gotta confirm the date now if you really want to go. The event will start in abt 3 weeks..

After you order tickets and finish payment online, the system will give you a receipt immediately, and you can show the receipt to the ticket booth when you arrive the stadium and they will print the tickets for you then.

Now, i assume that also applies for individuals who want to purchase the tix in person at the ticket booths as well? They can only purchase a max. of 2 tickets per session?..
Hopefully there are still tix available at the ticket booths on the week of the event, in case dassad is not able to purchase any tix online..
