Yesterday, organisers started to contact people who applied to watch some of the world-class competition take place in venues across the city next summer.
In the next few days all ticket applicants will be contacted via letter or email.
During the four-week window for applications there were 2.3 million requests for up to one million tickets. Those for the most popular events are being allocated in a fair-draw process, organisers said.
Proving particularly popular from the 17 sports on offer was track cycling, to be held at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, which received 25 times more requests than the number of tickets available. There was also an excess of 100,000 applications made for the 100m men's final at Hampden Park.
Other sports that were oversubscribed included diving, swimming, mountain biking, artistic gymnastics, judo, shooting and triathlon.
Many applicants took to Twitter to express their elation or disappointment after being contacted by Glasgow 2014.

Graham Farquharson from Glasgow wrote: "Thrilled! Got tickets to @Glasgow2014 athletics finals on my birthday and hopefully seeing @EilidhChild win."
Other people wrote on the social networking site that they had been successful in applying for the opening and closing ceremony and the diving finals, which were among the most popular events.
Hazel Smith wrote: "Excited to have got tickets for the closing ceremony of Commonwealth Games @Glasgow2014 but kids would have liked to have seen an event too!"
Some applicants were not so lucky. Scott Craig of Renfrew said: "Right, 10 years trying, not a ...single entry into the London marathon. Now, not one Commonwealth Games ticket!!!!!! Utter...!"
Jason Harvey wrote: "Parents only got 1 session for @Glasgow2014 let's hope I can get some closer to the time.
"Looks like it's harder to get tickets than London!"
Catherine McMillan added: "Totally disappointed even though it was a long shot trying to get tickets for opening ceremony !!"
Glasgow 2014 deputy chief executive Ty Speer said: "Today marks yet another exciting moment in the journey to Glasgow 2014 and it's a real pleasure to share the details of which great live sporting moments Games fans will be part of next summer.
"The overwhelming enthusiasm demonstrated by hundreds of thousands of people already guarantees tremendous crowds across the board for Commonwealth athletes.
"This is a real vote of confidence and it's clear that so many people intend to make sure this is going to be a great Games in Glasgow."
Everyone who has applied for tickets will be offered the opportunity to buy more during an exclusive on-sale period before any remaining tickets are placed on general sale in late October.
Earlier it was announced that Scottish shooting, netball, boxing and wrestling have benefited from the biggest funding increases in the period around the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
The Scottish Government's sport agency, sportscotland, says it invested 23.5% more in the 17 sports to feature in the Glasgow Games from 2011-2015 than in the previous funding cycle, 2007-11.
