If you have been trying to buy tickets to watch the Olympic regatta you will probably have failed. They are apparently not on sale.
There are very few tickets to watch the rowing.
And so Rowperfect started to ask some questions from people at the top of the sport.
Rio rowing tickets have become a real problem – the cost cutting by the Rio Olympic committee has included the temporary grandstand at the course – it will now not be added on to.
We have no tickets – literally
We are oversubscribed even for our major sponsors / board / donors etc

And this one from another National Federation
I think the decision to cut the size of the grandstand at Rio was taken quite some time ago. I’m not sure if it’s been cut further but I wouldn’t be surprised given the financial difficulties that have been reported. There is a general lack of tickets and even the FISA F F stand was oversubscribed.
