Residents of Brazil will be able to apply for tickets on official website, while overseas fans should contact authorised vendors in their regions
Tickets for Rio 2016 Paralympic Games will go on sale to residents of Brazil on 7 September 2015 – exactly one year until the opening ceremony at the Maracanã Stadium. Overseas fans, meanwhile, should contact the authorised ticket resellers (ATRs) in their territories.
Rio 2016 will publish the list of confirmed ATRs on 7 September, and will update the list if further vendors are added. The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) will appoint one global reseller to operate in countries that have not appointed their own ATR.
“This first phase is the best time for spectators to acquire their tickets, as there will be the greatest availability of tickets,” said Rio 2016 ticketing director Donovan Ferreti.
There will also be an online first-come-first-served sales phase for residents of Brazilian in January. As with the first phase, applicants must have a Brazilian CPF number, a fixed address in Brazil and be over 18 years old.
In June 2016, the last tickets will be sold at box offices.
In total, there will be 3.3 million tickets for 23 sports disciplines at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. Click here to see the ticket price ranges.
