REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- The Indonesian Asian Games Organizing Committee (INASGOC) will start selling tickets for matches starting on June 30. IINASGOC Chairman Erick Thohir said people could buy tickets online at Asian Games 2018 official website, and sale would also be managed by official agency Kios Tix using credit cards, bank transfers, or cash at Alfamart retail shop.

Tickets may also be purchased at official Asian Games 2018 ticket stands or merchandise shops in several shopping malls in Jakarta and Palembang as well as at Games venues.

"We should try to buy Asian Games 2018 tickets immediately, so that we may not miss out the performance of great Asian athletes and will not miss being part of the national history," he said in an official statement from INASGOC on Monday.

Thohir remarked that he would do his best to make the ticket prices affordable. "We would carefully determine the best prices as we do not wish to burden people. We are still discussing the right prices. Basically, they will be put in four different categories of prices with different profits," he added.

Thohir expressed optimism that a lot of tickets would be sold, in view of public enthusiasm towards the event.

INASGOC ticketing director Sarman Simanjorang revealed that people would be required to present their identity cards, e-mail addresses, and telephone numbers while buying tickets, which would be needed to collect tickets, which could be in the form of thermal tickets or wristband tickets.

Around one thousand people would be employed to scan or monitor the tickets. "It is hoped that through the method, the issue of fake tickets could be prevented," he pointed out.

To avoid ticket scalping, one ID may only be used to buy four tickets, he explained, adding that the rule will not be applied on group buying by organizations, such as national committees or foreign representatives.

For foreign spectators, Kios Tix will coordinate and cooperate with national committees of their countries, travel agencies, or foreign online services to ease foreign representatives to watch the events, he elaborated.
