Tickets for the Paralympic Games went on sale at 9:00 AM (U.S. Eastern Time). As of about noon Eastern time, multiple sessions are already listed as “sold out” of category A tickets. The tickets are divided into three price ranges, category A being the highest-priced, with category B and C tickets also available.
In fact, every prelims session is listed as “sold out” of category A tickets, though it’s not clear if those tickets have actually sold out, or whether there are no category A tickets for prelims sessions. The only finals session with a “sold out” category listed are the Monday (August 31) finals, which list category A as “sold out.”
