Track and field enthusiasts still hoping for a grandstand ticket for Saturday's final day of the ISSA/ GraceKennedy Boys and Girls' Championships will have to think of an alternative, as those are already sold out.
Colleen Montaque, chairperson of the championships, told The Gleaner that the much sought-after tickets are no longer available, but that grandstand seats are still on offer for all other days, as well as tickets for the bleachers section.
"Tickets are available for the grandstand area for all days except for Saturday," Montaque announced. "Those Saturday grandstand tickets are all sold out. We have for the other days though and we certainly have bleachers tickets for the other days as well."
Montaque also advised that, though not a perfect day, yesterday's opening session went fairly well, but that everything will be in place as the meet progresses.
"Everything is coming together, the technical aspect of it is settled, everything is in place and we are ready in terms of that," Montaque said. "There are other little areas that are outstanding that we are trying to put together but certainly by tomorrow, those will be ready."
The administrator, who is also the principal of Wolmer's Girls, also informed that the organisers will be providing live streaming services from its www.issasports.tv website throughout the event.
The Gleaner understands that previous streaming rights holders SportsMax were not offered the rights this year, even though their contract stipulated a first rights of refusal.
While not speaking on that matter, Montaque underlined the importance of a streaming platform for the international audience.
"There will be streaming, you can visit www.issasports.tv for streaming right across the world," said Montaque.
"The call has been there over the years and we have been doing it in the past and this year it will be no different as we will be providing streaming across the Caribbean and the world," Montaque added.
