TORONTO – Canadian Olympic Team fans looking to give the sporting gift of a lifetime will be able to place reservations for hotel and holiday packages to the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, the Canadian Olympic Committee announced today.
Starting at noon EST Friday December 14th, reservations for packages can be made exclusively through cosport.com, where fans will also be able to express interest in individual tickets to the Games.
“For an Olympic fan, a package like this is truly the ultimate gift,” said Christopher Overholt, Secretary General and CEO of the Canadian Olympic Committee. “What could be more amazing than receiving an Olympic experience where the Canadian Olympic Team is striving for a first-place overall finish?”
CoSport, the official hospitality supplier for the Canadian Olympic Team, as well as for seven other national Olympic committees, has extensive experience ensuring that the Olympic ticketing process is smooth, effective and efficient. Additionally, CoSport, along with its sister company Jet Set Sports has been appointed the Official Hospitality Supplier for the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games offering Canadian fans the exceptional opportunities to secure authentic event ticketing and enjoy proven customer service.
“We’re pleased to once again partner with CoSport to ensure that Canadians looking to secure an amazing Games experience will be well taken care of,” continued Overholt. “It’s very important to have an experienced organization who can liaise with the local Olympic Organizing committee to ensure that Canadian fans and ticketholders are well taken care of.”
For more information, to reserve packages, or to express interest in individual tickets for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, fans can visit cosport.com.
NOTE: The initial stage of the process for sourcing Individual Tickets is set in three steps: The Expression of Interest, the confirmation of availability, and the actual purchase. Only if CoSport can confirm enough available tickets in Canada to satisfy submitted Expressions of Interest — and the Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee releases ticket prices — will the account holder be able to purchase those tickets. Participating in the Expression of Interest process offers accountholders the fullest opportunity to secure individual tickets in anticipation of CoSport’s initial Sochi 2014 individual ticket live sales.
