Credit where credit is due! After the shit show that was the start of the 30th SEA Games (see here) President Duterte has now announced tickets for the 56 events will now be free of charge.
Tickets for Philippines football and basketball matches have already run out, and will not be reimbursed.
Amazingly 10,000 tickets to the closing ceremony will be given our freely to the masses, as well as 15,000 to volunteers. Hopefully it doesn’t just become a huge rxercise in scalping…
Alas tickets for the opening ceremony are already sold out. How said free tickets will be distributed is anyone’s guess, but officially at least priority will be given to educational facilities.
And who said there was no such thing as a free lunch!
