About 150,000 spectators are expected to be invited to attend events at the Beijing Olympics (China) in two of the three clusters of venues, organizers said on February 3rd.

The ‘St. Louis Post Dispatch’ stated that plans to sell tickets to international visitors were scrapped last year because of the coronavirus pandemic and the block was extended to residents of China in January this year.

The 2022 Winter Olympics, officially called the XXIV Olympic Winter Games and commonly known as Beijing 2022, is an ongoing international winter multisport event that opened on February 4th, 2022 and is taking place in Beijing, China, with some events in Yanqing and Chongli. The multisport event will take place from February 4th to February 20th, 2022.

The ‘St. Louis Post Dispatch’ further stated that venues in Beijing and Zhangjiakou are now set to have invited spectators but Alpine skiing and sliding sports in Yanqing will go ahead without fans.

Invited spectators will be drawn from “international friends residing in China’s mainland, members of diplomatic missions and marketing partners,” organizers said in a presentation to the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

School children, local residents and “winter sports enthusiasts” are also targets to attend events.

“The spectator base will be as extensive and diversified as possible,” organizers said.

Limited numbers of accredited people at the Olympics, including sports officials and media who are living in closed-off bubbles separate from the Chinese public, will also attend events.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is a Non-Governmental sports organization based in Lausanne, Switzerland. It is constituted in the form of an association under the Swiss Civil Code.
