Tickets going on sale for the upcoming Olympics

By  | 

Pyeongchang, South Korea (EBU / NBC News Channel) -- Tickets are now on sale for the upcoming Winter Olympics in South Korea.

Online sale of tickets to the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Winter Games and Paralympic Winter Games started Tuesday.

Organizers say interest in games is mounting both in and outside of Korea, but it's not resulting in actual ticket purchases.

The Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games are just some 150 days away, but only about 230,000 tickets or a mere 22% of all available tickets have been sold since they first went on sale in February.

The organizing committee says they hope this second online ticket sales window will spur sales.

Tickets can be purchased through its official homepage.
