Beijing organizers will provide students with some low-fare
tickets in order to better promote the Olympic Movement among the
youngsters, local report said on Saturday.
Wang Hui, vice executive director of media and communication
department of the Beijing organizing committee, said that they are
considering putting names on the low-price tickets which students
need to get by producing identifications.
She added that the low price of tickets do not mean the seats
are unfavorable for watching competition.
"All the seats of Olympic venues have been designed
scientifically, and the view of any ticket holder will not be
hindered," she was quoted as saying by Beijing Youth Daily.
There are a total of 7 million tickets for the competition of
the 2008 Olympics, whose sales are expected to start from early
next year, Wang added.
