Tickets still available for Games

ALMOST one-third of sports to be staged at next year's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow have not yet been sold out, with tickets also available for spectators at the opening and closing ceremonies.

Passes can still be obtained for six sports, including badminton, boxing, lawn bowls, rugby sevens, squash and weightlifting, while there are also limited tickets for the ceremonies at the start and the end of the event. Ticket prices start from £15 for adults, which also includes the cost of access to public transport in the local area on the day of the event.

Ty Speer, Deputy Chief Executive of Glasgow 2014, said: "Being part of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games will be a unique once in a lifetime experience and what sports fan wouldn't want a ticket to watch world-class sport involving top athletes from across the Commonwealth. We're delighted to say there are still limited tickets available for anyone who wants to join us and experience great sport in Glasgow next summer."

Meanwhile, BBC Radio 2 has announced it will broadcast around 70 hours of opera by Richard Strauss as part of a series -finished off with a live concert from Glasgow on August 1, two days before the end of the Games.
