Health is wealth, an old saying but full of wisdom. It is said, if you have everything in this world but not health, then you have nothing and if you have nothing but health, it means you have everything.
Keeping people concerned about their health and advising them on how to stay healthy has grown into a business. Out of all the tricks and techniques for people to stay healthy; the most common, entertaining, and popular is to engage oneself in sports activities. These activities are not only famous for the sole purpose of health keeping, but they have a more commercial angle to them i.e. entertainment and allowing people to be a part of that activity.
All over the world, there are numerous sports events that are conducted at different levels e.g. there are Olympics or World cups (these are, as the name suggests, very prestigious tournaments and top of the top teams/players compete for glory), national-level games/leagues, domestic level, district or provincial level, local sports events and then there are school/college-level tournaments.
The ambiance, thrills, electrifying atmosphere, and emotions; thus, almost everything at different levels varies from each other. The Olympics and world cups have very personal nationalist emotions to them which might escape any other level tournament.
Since these events have a unique flavor to them, a procedure has been devised over the years to fulfill the requirements of the public enjoying such events by offering services with purchased tickets.
Sporting event tickets and services
Few of the sporting event tickets and the services they offer are described as under: –
General Stand Tickets:
The most common type of tickets and commonly for the general public are the general stand tickets. These are open-air tickets, very cheap, and offer a very limited service to them. These tickets ensure a lot of hoopla and thrills. If one tends to enjoy a sport in its entirety, then these are the tickets to go for.
General Enclosure Tickets:
A step over the general stand, these tickets offer a relatively private space as compared to the previous category. Being on a slightly higher pedestal, the view these tickets ensure is fairly better as well. Since most stadiums these days hosting sports events come with gift shops or small snack bars, these tickets have few subcategories. Those who come at a tad higher price may offer coupons to enjoy at these facilities.
Premium Space Tickets:
There is always a supreme location in a stadium that offers personal space and services in the footstep. These private spaces do not, however, offer a great view of the game. This inadequacy of a great view is compensated by large TV screens that are installed in that particular enclosure. These tickets proffer food and drink services that are integral to the ticket cost. Like general enclosure tickets, they also offer coupons or gift vouchers with them.
The Lounge/Stadium View Tickets:
There is a category of people who are not interested in the game as much as they want to break their mundane routine. These people have a few extra bucks with them to fulfill that purpose. For them, these types of tickets are like a look no further option. It offers a spectacular view of the entire stadium while they can indulge themselves in contemporary cuisines. Such tickets do tender its buyers’ extra drinks and other pricey offers.
Many times, schools, colleges, and office organizations arrange groups to enjoy sporting events. For them, these are the perfect type of tickets. These tickets can offer the groups specific team costumes, placards, and small trumpets for them to cheer their particular team. Since these tickets are bought in bulk, their price is fairly cheap.
A deliberate ticketing system has ensured that it fulfills the increased demand of the public to enjoy all sporting events. Whatever the sort of tickets one buys for witnessing any such event, the enjoyment, entertainment, fun, and useful utilization of time stays inherent along with being the prime purpose that every ticket type has to offer.
