Worlds is in France? Uh-oh, is it possible that Russia will still be on the red list and be unable to attend without quarantine? Or maybe even the US or some other country? That's a bit of a worry!

I sincerely hope not. I think Stockholm has shown such a big competition can be organised safely (even though there was some 'collateral damage' of a false positive test result) and many people weren't (yet) vaccinated - whatever the vaccin.

Has anyone heard anything about tickets for this event?
I tried to look on the French figure skating website but it doesn’t look like there is anything up yet - it was linked from an ISU page I think. My French is a bit rusty so I could have missed something.

Wow, thanks for the headsup.
So, basically, there are very limited tickets on sale (I see a few Gold areas, but I would expect more.) 1,200 euros for a package. And nothing near the front rows.
Anyone know if there will be VIP, something better than Gold? (I would expect as much.)
Also… seriously? Tickets on sale, but no official website? :jaw:

How much more French fed could this be? This might be a stupid question, but on the map they haven't highlighted where the judges will be sitting - where on the map will that be? Glad the individual tickets are available though, as an all event ticket is perhaps a financial stretch for me just now!

I wish they would have English translation on their site too! How do you know they have individual tickets? Is that the reduced tariff?

I've been trying to muddle through for weeks now - it is so convoluted and confusing - I still haven't figured it out! What I do know is that I don't want an all event ticket though. When I looked initially it seemed there was individual tickets but the website has changed again and now I'm not sure how. Also, what is a discounted rate? No clue here.

Yes it is somewhat confusing but at least for me the individual session tickets show up as the first option. If you then click "select your own seat" or "choisissez vos places sur plan" you can choose the different sessions from a dropdown menu (it's in French..programme court dames for example means womens short program, programme court hommes is the mens short program etc.).

And the reduced rate is only for children under 12 and licensees of the French skating federation. The information is a little bit hidden on the website. At first I thought it is some kind of early booking discount but that is not the case unfortunately.

You can also change the language from French to English in the upper left hand corner of the site.

Ah thanks! I wish they'd not used ticketmaster - the worst ever imo. Still no clue where the judges will be, I did email to ask but didn't get a response.

Yeah, ticketmaster is awful! You're welcome! The judges are sitting on the F side apparently. The info was only recently added on the site, again a little bit hidden unfortunately- you can see it when you click on "placement and prices". I just saw it a couple of days ago for the first time as well. The Kiss and Cry will be between the H and I sections.

I went back to check after I posted this and I managed to get tix! It’s still a bit confusing but easier than when I tried before. I googled “World Figure Skating Championships Montepellier tickets”. That took me to what looks like the official website (in English) and from there you click the link thats says tickets - it should take you to the English version of the French Ticketmaster site where they have the tickets, packages etc. listed. I just wanted tickets to dance so I picked the “tickets” option (which is for individual events). Then you click the seating map to choose your seats and a drop down menu will show up and you pick the event you want to get tickets for. Super weird way to do it but hey ho. I hope that helps!
