  • ACOG ANNOUNCES FINAL DETAILS FOR TICKET BUYERS

         ACOG yesterday announced final details on how to purchase
    tickets for the '96 Games.  Ticket brochures will be available
    May 1 and are expected to be available at grocery stores and Home
    Depot's.  Although there are 11 million tickets -- more than L.A.
    and Barcelona combined -- around half of the events are expected
    to sell out in the first two months.  ACOG's "FairTix" computer
    system will be used to select winners and assign seats for events
    that sell out by June 30 (Melissa Turner, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION,
    3/17).
