Tickets for sporting events can be bought at the venues themselves, although the best option is to order them online from a ticket seller for convenience. Tickets can often be delivered within 24 hours if you live within the Fourth Ring Road. Usually tickets can be paid for in cash on delivery. Alternatively, you can often choose where you would like to pick up tickets during the purchase process. Choices can include the ticket seller’s location or the venue box office.
