Open since 4 March, the sales period for individual tickets for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ 2014 in Normandy does not include tickets for the Final 4 of the jumping. This test, which only takes place at the World Equestrian Games, is the very last event of the fortnight and is to be followed by the closing ceremony in Caen's d'Ornano Stadium on 7 September 2014.
As those tickets are highly sought after, the Organising Committee sets up a registration period from 11am on 24 April to 11am on 28 April (CET - online registration). A draw will then be made in order to decide the final ticket-holders.
A transparent and fair system
Half of all the calls received on the event's telephone line concern the Final 4. Since the demand for this test is so much greater than the capacity of d'Ornano Stadium (21,000 seats), the Organising Committee wanted to establish a transparent system that would be as fair as possible to all spectators. Allocating tickets in this way ensures that potential spectators with a slow internet connection or time difference are not penalised. This solution is used for numerous large-scale events, such as the football World Cup or the Olympic Games.
What do I have to do?
Internet users have 4 days (from 24 to 28 April) in which to register, with a limit of 4 tickets maximum per person, via the official event website or at Normandy 2014 Organising Committee-approved Tourist Offices.
A draw will then be carried out, under the supervision of a bailiff, in order to determine the 10,000 people who will be allocated a ticket* out of all of the people who registered.
The lucky ticket-holders will receive their order confirmation by email from 30 April and the amount shown on their order will be debited from their bank account.
Tickets for the Final 4 will be priced at € 136 in category 2 and € 170 in category 1. Children under 12 will be given a 50% discount on the full price. These tickets automatically grant access to the closing ceremony, which will follow on from the event.
