Tickets for Rio 2016 Paralympics to go on sale
Tickets for Rio 2016 Paralympic Games will go on sale to residents of Brazil on 7 September – exactly one year until the Opening Ceremony at the Maracana Stadium. Overseas fans, meanwhile, should contact the authorised ticket resellers (ATRs) in their territories.
Rio 2016 will publish the list of confirmed ATRs on 7 September, and will update the list if further vendors are added. The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) will appoint one global reseller to operate in countries that have not appointed their own ATR.
Residents of Brazil will be able to register on the ticket portal on 7 September and select the tickets they would like to buy. Those who applied for Olympic Games tickets will be able to use the same logins. In cases when the number of requests is larger than the number of tickets available, there will be a draw. Results of the first phase will be known in October.
“This first phase is the best time for spectators to acquire their tickets, as there will be the greatest availability of tickets,” said Rio 2016 ticketing director Donovan Ferreti.
There will also be an online first-come-first-served sales phase for residents of Brazil in January. As with the first phase, applicants must have a Brazilian Cadastro de Pessoas Fisicas (CPF) number, a fixed address in Brazil and be over 18 years old.
In June 2016, the last tickets will be sold at box offices.
In total, there will be 3.3 million tickets for 23 sports disciplines at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. For a detailed list of ticket price ranges for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, visit Rio 2016’s official website. (Please note that ATRs may charge a booking fee).
