Tickets for big events like lacrosse, women’s softball, parkour and sport climbing are all selling fast. World Games CEO Nick Sellers said if you want in on the action, you need to act now.

“There are several sports that are getting close to selling out. I’ll tell you right now, if you haven’t gotten your tickets to opening ceremonies, you should get them quickly,” Sellers said. “There is roughly 10,000 or less tickets for opening ceremonies, and we’ve got some big announcements on the horizon. When we make those announcements, those tickets will go very fast.”
