We’re only 100 days away from the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and tickets are still available.
Time magazine recently highlighted a few locations where U.S. residents can buy tickets for the Olympics, which are normally sold through the National Olympic Committees and ticket resellers.
Here are Time's notes about buying tickets:
- U.S. residents can visit CoSport/Jet Set Sports to buy both individual tickets and packages for sports events and opening and closing ceremonies.
- The Team USA website also recommends interested parties buy through CoSport.
- Korean residents can buy tickets at tickets.pyeongchang2018.com.
- Tickets can range from as low as $141 to $1,738.79.
But Utahns who want to be there when Olympic athletes shred up winter powder may have a chance in 2026 or 2030, as Salt Lake City is exploring the possibility of bringing the Winter Games back to Utah, according to the Deseret News.
In October, a group of Utah leaders, including Gov. Gary Herbert and Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski, formed an exploratory committee, which will look into the potential financial impact of Salt Lake City hosting the Olympics again, according to the Deseret News.
The International Olympic Committee, which will likely choose the sites for both 2026 and 2030 Winter Games, is accepting bids until March 31, 2018.
The U.S. Olympic Committee announced in October it hopes to find an American city that can host since the front-runner for one of those future Winter Games, Innsbruck, Austria, dropped out after voters rejected a bid in a nationwide referendum.
Utah Sports Commission President and CEO Jeff Robbins said he hopes Utah gets a shot.
"I'll tell you, if we could get 2026, I'd be thrilled. If we could get 2030, I'd be thrilled," he said. "So we're not choosy."
