Get Your Games Face On

Wow, what a weekend! In case you missed it tickets went on sale Friday (if you did check out Ticketmaster.com and get yours today!) There were many, many long days spent prepping for ticket sales to begin, but our team survived and we were so relieved to see everything go smoothly for ticketbuyers Friday.

Some fans may not have purchased this weekend thinking, “I’ll still get to see everything I want.” Well, if you’re a fan of dressage, eventing, jumping, reining, or opening ceremonies, you might want to “pony” up before they’re gone!

With dressage, eventing, and jumping being Olympic disciplines they have a strong following and so we anticipated those events going fast, what we didn’t expect was how fast. They’re not sold out, but they may be gone before you realize.

That is by not means to miss out on driving, endurance, para-dressage or vaulting. Tickets have been sold for every one of the 49 sessions of ticketed events available. We’ve sold tickets in all 50 states and over 25 countries. This first week of sales has by far exceeded our expectations, and we can't wait to see all of you in Kentucky.

The support has been great and we’ll continue to work hard to make your experience next fall great! Over the past few weeks you may have noticed our recent partnership with the National Reining Horse Association. This agreement led to the NRHA putting on a Reining Freestyle Exhibition. With the Games being in the U.S. for the first time and reining being such a western sport, the fit seemed natural. The Reining Freestyle Exhibition on September 30, 2010 at 6 p.m. will be a special event whether you’re a diehard fan or experiencing reining for the first time.

In addition to ticket sales we also launched information regarding accommodations, parking, daily hospitality passes and World Games Radio. If you want to add to your experience at the 2010 Games any and all of these options will certainly help. As more information becomes available please be sure to check our website. There are two phases of the site and we’re currently in the first and planning towards the second. As the Games near we’ll make changes and add information to make the Games a once-in-a-lifetime-experience.
