The popularity of the 24th European Athletics Championships from 7-12 August 2018 is not in doubt. Demand for tickets is so high, in fact, that Berlin 2018 organisers have opened up a new block of seats at the Berlin Olympic Stadium to accommodate more spectators.

The new tickets are located in different blocks throughout the stadium, are for all sessions, and are already on sale. New business seats without catering have been added in Block M4 along the back straight of the running track at a price of 30 euros for morning sessions and 95 euros for evening sessions.

New seats are also now available for the evening sessions in blocks 20/21 (Price Class 3), 23-25 (PC2-PC3) as well as 29-31 (PC2). In addition, tickets for business seats without catering in the main stand in Block E3 are now available at a price of 140 euros for the evening sessions.

Due to their limited availability, Week Passes for all ten sessions can only be booked via the ticket hotline: +49 1806 999 000 2018 (€0,20/call from a German landline; max. €0,60/call from German mobile networks). So be quick! For more information, see: www.berlin2018.info/tickets.
