Asian Games Leave Public Cold

      September 16, 2014 12:32

      Ticket sales for the Incheon Asian Games have been lackluster. The organizing committee on Sunday said only 18 percent of tickets including for the opening and closing ceremonies had been sold until Sunday.

      Some events featuring stars like swimmer Park Tae-hwan and rhythmic gymnast Son Yeon-jae are sold out, but overall interest is negligible, with just five percent of tickets for track and field events and six percent for football games sold.

      Track and field events are traditionally unpopular here, and people are not interested in football matches unless they feature the Korean team, the committee said.
