Ticket sales for the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics will begin online in February, the organizing committee announced Monday.
The original plan was to begin online sales last October, but problems with the ticketing system and marketing led to the postponement after discussions with the International Olympic Committee.
The price of tickets for the opening ceremony will range from W220,000 to W1.5 million, and those for the closing ceremony from W220,000 to W950,000 (US$=W1,169).
The organizing committee hopes to sell 1.17 million tickets for revenue of W174 billion. The Pyeongchang Olympics open on Feb. 9 next year for a 17-day run.
