The Leisure & Cultural Services Department announced that tickets for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games Mainland Olympians delegation sports demonstrations and variety show have sold out.   Around 5,300 tickets for the sports demonstrations and variety show were reserved for sale to the public.   While almost 90% of the tickets were sold from 10am to 11am today via URBTIX, all of them were sold out at around 6pm.   The department explained that despite the heavy traffic, the URBTIX system has been operating smoothly in general and tickets were sold without disruption.   However, names of ticket holders failed to be printed on the tickets in a few transactions. Since their personal particulars have been recorded in the system, it is not necessary for these ticket holders to exchange their tickets.   Venue staff will verify the identity of the ticket holders on-site on the event day and patrons concerned will be notified of the arrangements, the department added.
