    2014 Olympics and Paralympics Tickets

    PyeongChang projects the fewest ticket sales yet the most ticket revenue, all with prices comparable to Sochi and Salzburg.

    All three cities expect an Olympic ticket sell out rate above 77 percent and a Paralympic sell out rate above 50 percent.

    The best deal around would be the Sochi Paralympics, with ceremony and prime event tickets down into the single digits.
