PEOPLE WITH AN IMPAIRMENT, SENIOR CITIZENS AND MINORS UNDER 18 HAVE A 50% DISCOUNT ON GAMES TICKETS
The Head of the Lima 2019 Ticketing Area encouraged Peruvians to buy their tickets in advance, as this will extend the sport celebration and will produce a change in our society regarding the people with an impairment.
Hector Ramos, head of Lima 2019 Ticketing Area, said that buying a ticket for the Parapan American Games will extend the sports celebration that started with the Pan American Games and will inspire the change in our society, so that people with an impairment get an equal treatment.
“We had a great success with the Pan American Games, and we hope to repeat it or exceed that experience at the Parapan American Games. During the Pan American Games, the stands were packed, and there was a high demand. Now, we also expect stands packed with people rooting for all Para athletes at the Parapan American Games,” he mentioned.
We will continue with the same ticket sales format: physical and electronic tickets (e-tickets) that spectators can show from their phone. In addition, people will be able to get the tickets at the Lima 2019 web (www.lima2019.pe), ticket offices inside the venues, and the 11 points of sale used for the Pan Americans that will continue to be operative (their exact locations are pointed out at the institutional web).
Ramos said that, in some cases (due to the excitement for the Pan American Games), people tried to buy their tickets too late, even when some competitions had already sold out.
“The idea is that people buy them in advance. Some of the Para swimming, judo, Para badminton and wheelchair basketball competitions are already sold out. We should not miss out this chance.”
He also said that the Parapan American Games will be a celebration to share with the family and that the price of the tickets, starting at PEN 10.00, were established accordingly.
“In addition to the 50% discount for minors under 18 years, senior citizens and people with an impairment (applied in ceremonies and competitions tickets), there is a “day pass” that you can get for a lower price to enjoy two Para sports; for example, football 5-a-side and football 7-a-side at Villa María del Triunfo.”
Furthermore, he added that the Lima 2019 Parapan American Games Opening Ceremony will be in charge of Balich Worldwide Shows, the same Italian firm that was in charge of the Opening and Closing Ceremony of the Lima 2019 Pan American Games and the Río 2016 Olympic Games.
“The idea is that we can all fill up the National Stadium and make it vibrate with excitement. Let’s not miss out the chance of witnessing an international show. Even though we can watch it from home, the feeling of being there singing and living the experience is great.”
“We have set some purchase limits, like the number of tickets that a person can buy. We encourage everyone to get their tickets in advance,” he added.
