Rio Olympic Ticket Requests Open

  • 28 May 15

New Zealanders (New Zealand residents) can now request tickets for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Tickets are available in a range of sports and for the opening and closing ceremonies for the Rio Olympic Games.


Demand for tickets at the Rio Olympic Games will be high and ticket numbers are limited.

The initial individual ticket request process will conclude on June 10. From June, confirmed packages including tickets, flights and accommodation will also be available.

A second individual ticket allocation will take place later in the year as additional tickets from Rio 2016 are expected to become available.

New Zealanders should visit www.nzolympictravel.co.nz to view the competition schedule, ticket prices,and make their initial ticket requests.

New Zealanders are urged to ensure they book accommodation early, as hotels are expected to be in high demand during the Rio Olympic Games.

Initial allocations for individual tickets are by random ballot. Any initially unsuccessful ticket requests will be prioritised in the second round of allocations later in 2015. It is expected a Rio 2016 Friends and Family ticket programme will be announced by the games organisers in August.

New Zealand Olympic Travel is the official Authorised Ticket Reseller for New Zealand (ATR). Tickets sold via New Zealand Olympic Travel are for New Zealand residents only. The Rio Olympic Games take place August 5 - August 21 2016.
