Looking to buy tickets for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games? Phase one ticketing sales have already closed, but more opportunities to purchase tickets open this spring.
Remaining tickets for Olympic events go on sale to the general public on a first-come, first-serve basis in late spring 2009, with the specific starting and ending dates yet to be announced. Ticket purchases this spring will include a general seating location only, with specific seats assigned later. Special accessible seating tickets are available for people with disabilities. The outlets for purchasing tickets vary depending on citizenship.
Canadian residents can purchase tickets online or by phone through the official ticketing center at 800-842-5387. Vancouver 2010 accepts only one credit card: Visa.
Those living outside Canada regardless of citizenship must purchase tickets through official ticketing agents for each nation's Olympic committee.

CoSport is also the official ticket sales outlet for residents of Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, Sweden, and countries within the European Union and European Economic Zone. Contact the company online or call 908-766-2227. CoSport accepts payment from Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.
