Organisers of the 15th FINA World Championships Barcelona 2013 today launch their ticket sales campaign: available online at www.bcn2013.com. There are 533,639 tickets across five Olympic sports and high diving.
The FINA long-course showcase will be held from July 19 to August 4. Tickets start at only 9 euros. The campaign is aimed at the Christmas market, with another drive due for Easter ahead of the show at the Palau Sant Jordi (10,880 seats), the Picornell Swimming Pool (4,911), the Montjuïc Municipal Pool (4,323) and at Moll de la Fusta (1,808 for open water swimming and high diving, with many more spectator places available free).
Organisers noted: "In total, Barcelona 2013 offers 23,730 seats in four competition venues that play host to the events of the World Championships. Event organizers expect to sell out all the finals in each event and have calculated that approximately 400,000 spectators will attend the competition during 17 days, taking the number of people into consideration that will attend the event at Moll de la Fusta without purchasing a ticket."
