Tickets for the 2011 Commonwealth Youth Games go on sale three weeks today (Monday).
The best young athletes from the 69 nations of the Commonwealth will be competing to win the much coveted gold medals in a range of sports.
Events take place between Wednesday, September 7 and Sunday, September 10 and tickets will be available over a range of prices.
There will be concessions for senior citizens, children under 16 and disabled groups for all events apart from the swimming and gymnastics, where there is limited seating at the venues.
The three cycling events are free to spectators, including access to the Grandstand for the Road Race event on September 10.
Chairman and games director Geoff Karran says spectators are advised to get their tickets sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.
Manx residents can purchase their tickets from the Welcome Centre at the Sea Terminal, reception at the Villa Marina, or via the Ticketing Hotline on 600555.
