Ticket Prices Released for 2016 Olympic Games in Rio

Ticket prices have been released for all the sports at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, with the costs to watch all three phases of eventing fluctuating between $25 for cross country to $173 for a primo seat for show jumping.

Here’s a look at the ticket breakdown for eventing, with prices converted to U.S. dollars from the Brazilian real:

Category A: $41
Category B: $29

Cross Country: $25

Show Jumping:
Category A: $173
Category B: $86

There’s no information yet on the difference between category A and B seats, but it’s certainly a hefty price difference for show jumping.

That said, eventers definitely have the lowest ticket prices of the other equestrian disciplines by far, and fans of pure show jumping and dressage will have to dig deep if they want to watch the preliminary and final rounds of those events.

A category A ticket for the pure show jumping final will cost $222. Ouch.

Ticket sales are set to open to the public in November — just in time for your Christmas wish list.
