TICKETS AVAILABLE SOON: CoSport, the Olympic ticket sales company known in the U.S. as Jet Set Sports, announced it will put individual tickets to the Sochi Games on sale Monday. Ticket prices will start at $22. Physical tickets will be available in January '14. Jet Set Sports is an official sponsor of the USOC and its authorized ticket seller. It also sells tickets in Australia, Bulgaria, Canada, Great Britain, Norway and Sweden. In addition to individual tickets, Jet Set sells corporate hospitality packages. Jet Set Founder Sead Dizdarevic said demand for those packages was slightly higher than what the company saw for the '10 Vancouver Games and five times greater than what it saw for the '06 Turin Games. Much of that demand is coming from Russia and Scandinavia. Dizdarevic said, “Corporate in Russia will be substantial. Corporate in the rest of Jet Set might be smaller.”
