Singapore 2010 Update – Tickets, Countdown Clock

At an update given by Singapore 2010 Youth Games organizers during a ceremony to relocate the first Countdown Clock for the 2010 Youth Olympic Games it was announced that 20,000 tickets of the 320,000 available have been sold.

The Countdown Clock was moved from its present City Hall site to its new home at One Fullerton, which, according to Channel News Asia, is more in line with the upcoming activities for the Games as the Opening and Closing Ceremonies will be held at the Floating Platform and the official media centre will be at the Marina Bay Sands.

Also unveiled at the ceremony was a minute-long TV commercial to go on air April 19 in Singapore.

Senior Parliamentary Secretary, Community Development, Youth and Sports, Teo Ser Luck said, “we are quite happy with the progress. I think it will actually pick up for some of the other sports that are non-mainstream. We hope to do more and create more publicity for the mainstream sports. The sports that are more popularly followed like swimming, diving and even football are selling well”.
