More tickets for Asian Games

GUANGZHOU - ASIAN Games organisers have announced they will sell an additional 400,000 tickets after conceding that there are not enough spectators at stadiums and other competition venues.
Guangzhou officials appear to be having problems similar to that experienced by New Delhi organisers of last month's Commonwealth Games, when thousands of tickets set aside for or sent to corporate sponsors were not used.
That resulted in half-empty stadiums and ticket booths outside venues closed because the tickets were officially sold out.
The Asian Games started its competition on Saturday, and after two days attendance at many of the venues for the 42 sports has been sparse.
The games end Nov 27. -- AP
