The Indonesia Asian Para Games Organizing Committee (INAPGOC) will give free Asian Para Games tickets to some people with disabilities through several communities that support the disabled.

INAPGOC deputy chairwoman Sylviana Murni said the tickets would not be given to individuals, but communities appointed by the committee.

“There will be some representatives [of the communities] who will receive free tickets. However, we can’t give free tickets to all because they are limited,” Sylviana said on Thursday as quoted by kompas.com.

INAPGOC is set to sell Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze classes of tickets, the prices of which will be determined later.

All tickets can be purchased online, she added.  

Around 3,000 disabled athletes from 41 countries in Asia will take part in 18 sports in the Asian Para Games, which will be held from Oct. 6 to 13. (cal)
