Resolve Champs ticket fiasco

THE EDITOR, Sir:

It is amazing how every year ISSA makes millions from hosting the Boys & Girls' Championships, yet the issues regarding ticketing continue to be a problem.

One would think that with such huge investments coming into the championships, a credible and working ticketing system would come into play.

It is very unfortunate that legitimate ticket holders had to endure the agony of waiting outside for hours, only to be told that the stadium was full and they could not get in. I am also upset that LIME and Grace have nothing to say about that.

ISSA and its sponsors must ensure that they print tickets based on the number of seats and that they put in place the relevant security measures to ensure that only legitimate tickets are accepted at the points of entry. With a meet of this magnitude, the largest of its kind in the world, ISSA cannot continue to make these mistakes. I hope I won't have to endure this agony again.
