The emotion and energy of the ceremonies is a great way to experience the Games, said Caley Denton, vice president of ticketing for the committee.

Tickets for the 2010 Games go on sale to the public on Oct. 3, but by then a good chunk will already have been allocated to sponsors, officials and media who make up the Olympic family.

The cheapest ticket for the Games is $25 for preliminary sporting events and the most expensive is $1,100 for a top spot at the opening ceremonies.

"It's an area we feel quite strongly about and we've set those lines in the sand now and we're not moving from them," he said.

Plans include concerts with well known entertainers to draw spectators to the nightly celebrations.

"We wanted to make sure the seats are full," said Denton.

People will be notified later that month whether their choices have been accepted and they'll have the opportunity to add on additional tickets before the end of the year.
