Tickets for the 2018 World Equestrian Games (WEG) in Tryon, USA (11-23 September), have gone on sale today (16 October).
The first tickets that have become available are all-discipline passes and all-games passes for both of the two weeks of the competition, which will now be available for two weeks before single event tickets go on sale. This is to ensure those wishing to buy ticket packages get the same seats throughout the event.
This ticket package provides admission to the entirety of a discipline; dressage, eventing, showjumping, para-dressage, driving, vaulting or reining. It does not include access to the opening or closing ceremonies.
Prices for this ticket package are as follows:
Dressage — $345 (£260)
Eventing — $225
Showjumping — $375
Para-dressage — $110
Driving — $82
Vaulting — $105
Reining — $193
As the endurance competition is held on one day, there is no all-discipline pass available for this event; tickets will come out when the single event tickets are released.
This ticket package provides access to a whole week’s worth of WEG action, no matter which discipline you would like to watch. Prices and details of each week’s action are as follows:
Week one — $750: provides admission to dressage, eventing, endurance and reining, excluding the opening ceremony
Week two — $675: provides admission to showjumping, vaulting, para-dressage and driving, excluding the closing ceremony
All-games pass (both weeks) — $1,380: provides admission to all events for the duration of the Games, excluding the opening and closing ceremonies
Ticket prices will increase as the event gets closer. Prices do not include tax and an 8.5% processing fee — this will be applied once you reach the checkout area when buying tickets online.
Seats will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis according to the date and timestamp of the ticket purchase.
