5,300 tickets available to meet mainland Olympians

The Leisure and Cultural Services Department says 5,300 tickets for shows to be attended by a delegation of mainland athletes who competed in the Tokyo Olympics will be up for sale on Friday.

The delegation of around 30 athletes will visit Hong Kong from December 3 to 5.

They will give sports demonstrations in the morning of December 4 and attend a variety show at Queen Elizabeth Stadium in the evening.

Members of the public can buy tickets via URBTIX from Friday.

Each ticket will cost 20 dollars and each person can buy a maximum of two tickets each time. People buying the tickets must register their real names and use the LeaveHomeSafe app when they attend the shows.

Announcing the visit on Tuesday morning, Chief Executive Carrie Lam said she hoped the athletes will be warmly-received during their time in Hong Kong.
