OLYMPIC TICKETS ARE HOT ITEM
Published November 7, 1994
Orders for Olympics tickets are "already pouring in from folks with Olympic connections." Sponsors, licensees and local hotels were expected to place orders for tickets by October 31 and the 196 national Olympic committees will make their orders by December 1. Other groups with early access to tickets include local universities donating dorm rooms, Olympic venue owners, the ACOG private housing operation, soccer booster clubs and broadcast rights holders. ACOG isn't saying how many early tickets each group gets but says that the tickets are "both high- demand and low-demand." This means that ACOG is "likely low- balling" ticket sales projections, since 60% of the projected 6.7M total will probably be sold before the ticket sales are made public in the spring (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 11/5).
