May 12, 2014 (ISN) – Eager sports fans have been left frustrated today as they try to get their hands on more than 100,000 newly released extra tickets for the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
Tickets for all 17 sports at this summer’s Games, as well as the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, went on sale at 10am local time on the Glasgow 2014 ticketing website, on a first-come first-served basis.
Due to the expected high demand, organisers implemented a queuing system on both the website and the Glasgow 2014 telephone hotline.
Despite this, many ticket hopefuls have been left frustrated at the long wait times and crashing website.
Twitter user Personalised Music said they had been waiting for more than an hour-and-a-half when the website crashed.
“Finally logged [back] on and told waiting time is still over one hour. Frustrating!,” they added.
