Tickets for the 2017 Universiade will go on sale today, said Su Li-chung, secretary-general of the Taipei City Government, who heads the Taipei Universiade Organizing Committee, on May 4. With students expected to be the largest group considering attending the games, the prices for tickets to the opening ceremony have been capped at NT$3,500, with up to 80 percent to be sold for NT$800 each.

The opening ceremony will take place on Aug. 19 at the Taipei Municipal Stadium, which seats 26,000. Minus the seats reserved for the Federation Internationale du Sport Universitaire (FISU, International University Sports Federation), VIPs and contestants, tickets for a total of 13,000 seats are available for sale.

According to Su, as the people coming will predominantly be students, the committee has decided to keep the tickets at mid-to-low price points, with 11,000 tickets at NT$800, 1,500 tickets at NT$2,000, and 1,000 tickets at NT$3,500, with another 200 sponsor tickets going for NT$50,000 each.

Tickets for the opening and closing ceremonies and individual events will be available for purchase from today online and at ticketing machines in convenience stores, and from the competition venues during the period of the Universiade. The closing ceremony will also take place at the municipal stadium, the most expensive ticket priced at NT$2,000, limited to 1,300 tickets, and then 1,500 at NT$1,000 and 13,000 at NT$500.
