The organizers of the Asian Games, which will be held in Jakarta and Palembang, say they will allocate 25,000 tickets to students across the nation.

“We will work together with regional administrations to distribute 25,000 tickets to students [nationwide],” Indonesian Asian Games Organizing Committee (INASGOC) chief Erick Thohir said on Monday as quoted by Antara.

The tickets, however, would not be free because the single identification system would be used to purchase them, he added.

The organizers have not yet decided on a sales target.

Erick said he was optimistic that Indonesia could surpass the 1.3 million tickets sold at the previous Games, which was held in Incheon, South Korea, in 2014.

He hinted that the organizers might use some gimmicks -- such as door prizes -- to boost sales.
