The PeyongChang Organizing Committee and the International Paralympic Committee has got together to announce the ticket prices for the 2018 PeyongChang Paralympic Games ticket prices on Thursday.

The event will take place from the 9th to the 18th of March in 2018 with 80 events across six sports over the nine days. Tickets range from 16,000 KRW ($15) to 140,000 KRW ($125) for the various events in the Games.

The cheapest tickets are to the Biathlon, Curling and Alping Skiing preliminary events allowing for fans to see the best action from the early stages. As usual the most expensive ticket is for the highest ticket category to the Opening Ceremony, which will be at the PyeongChang Olympic Stadium on March 9th.

Popular events are expected to be the visually impaired alpine skiing, ice hockey and snowboard, all of which have been popular at previous Games. The hosts will have high hopes for their ice hockey team who came third at the same venue for the 2017 world championships recently.

Six sports will be featured in the 2018 Winter Paralympic Games: alpine skiing, biathlon, cross-country skiing, ice hockey, snowboard, and curling. These games mark the first time that snowboarding is being run as a separate sport, having made its debut in 2014 as part of the Alpine Skiing program. The sport is also expanded moving from two medal events to ten, bringing the total medal count to 80, a new record high.

Tickets will go on sale on the 21st of August, 200 days before the Games as part of the commemoration of that. Those living in Korea Republic can buy from the official website, while those living overseas can purchase through their designated ticket reseller.

Beginning in November tickets will be available at sites in airports, high-speed train stations, the city halls, provincial office and government organizations.
