Tickets now on sale for the 2011 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Oslo
With many afternoon events, two evening ski-jumping competitions and several events per day, everything is pointing to a huge spectator turnout during the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships at Holmenkollen this winter. Ticket sales started 1 September at 11 a.m.
With 21 events over 11 days (24 February – 6 March), the WSC programme is tightly packed. Two evening ski-jumping competitions, many attractive weekday afternoon events and reduced prices for children make tickets accessible and attractive to the public. “We want to create a major celebration. We also want to show the ski world that we are still a winter-happy nation full of supportive spectators. There is already tremendous interest in the tickets so we think that some are going to be snapped up quickly,” says Åsne Havnelid, CEO of FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2011.
Excellent facilities at Holmenkollen
All events take place at the new Holmenkollen facility which includes the spectacular new Holmenkollen ski jump and the naturally beautiful Midtstuen hill. “The Holmenkollen National Arena is the world’s most modern ski facility. The short distance between the various arenas at Holmenkollen also makes the facility and our WSC event unique. We hope the public uses the opportunity to see several ski events on the same day,” Havnelid concludes.
Tickets for the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2011 can be purchased online, by telephone and at selected Narvesen and 7-Eleven stores in Norway.
