Commonwealth Games organisers 'gutted' after 14000 incorrect tickets sent

Seven Network have become an official sponsor of Gold Coast 2018

The Federal Government will lend a helping hand ahead of the Commonwealth Games, with Federal Police, Defence Force personnel and Border Force Officers heading to the Gold Coast.

Tickets have started to be sent to spectators, with the Ceremony in the Australian city scheduled to take place on April 4.

About 14,000 tickets have been sent out in the past few days with the date Thursday, April 4 - but the opening ceremony is on Wednesday, April 4.

There will be boosted security at Gold Coast Airport with Border Force officers patrolling the facility during the Games.

Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation (GOLDOC) chief executive Mark Peters said printing glitches were common for large events, but ultimately it was a "human error" made by ticket issuer Ticketek. He further added that it was a mistake that no one wanted.

A giant iceberg, one of the largest one to date, broke off the Antarctic continent on July 12th, 2017. They will also record any marine mammals and birds that might have moved into the area.

The technical director however, said that to ensure that Nigeria's image is not tainted before and during the Commonwealth Games, all the athletes would be monitored to ensure that none of them use performance enhancing drug.

The remaining 21,000 opening ceremony tickets were believed to have been corrected because the error was detected "relatively early", but Mr Peters said he and Ticketek were "disappointed".

Other members of the Scottish Commonwealth Games badminton squad include Martin Campbell, Patrick MacHugh, Kieran Merrilees and Julie MacPherson.

The federal government announced on Tuesday the ADF, federal police and border force would all support the Queensland Police Service as lead agency at the April 4-15 event.
