AS cheap as the tickets for the 17th Asian Games are, you could still get them at a discount. There are also some events that are for free: bowling, canoe/kayak, cricket, sailing, modern pentathlon and triathlon.
Are you cheering for Team Korea, Team Pilipinas or both? We surely will be cheering for both teams. Aside from basketball, Team Pilipinas will also participate in these events:
Canoe- Sprint (M)
Cycling- Road (M)
Cycling – BMX (M)
Equestrian ( M/W)
Gymnastics -Artistic (M)
Soft Tennis (M/W)
Unfortunately, there are no more tickets for swimming and archery! Two of the games I wanted to see live 🙁
Too bad there is no dragonboat racing event. I would cheer for the Philippine Dragonboat racing team ~ and bring them food 😀
For those who would like to watch more games without breaking their wallets, here is the procedure…
Types of discount: veterans, disabled ~ 50% / group of 50 students ~ 70% / family of at least 3 ~ 50% / multicultural family of at least 3 people – 50% / group of 50 people – 30%
First, you should have a Korean mobile subscription in your name. Or ask someone who can purchase the tickets for you.
Choose the Korean website of OK Ticket. Register and log in.
After logging in and choosing the game and the date…
Select the number of seats and choose the discount type. In this case, I chose 가족 or family discount. Regular ticket is 10,000 won per person but family ticket is only 5,000 won per person. You will be prompted to type in the birth date of each family member in this format ~ YYMMDD so if you were born on January 1, 1980 enter 800101.
Check that the total is correct before clicking to continue.
You can pay by using a credit card or by cash deposit. Make sure you tick the check box on cancellation policy.
Afterwards, you can print the ticket or have it sent by SMS to your phone.
See you at the Asian Games!!!
