There will be two types of tickets: Ceremony Tickets will give access to either the Opening Ceremony at Bergisel Stadium on 13 January 2012 or to the Closing Ceremony in Maria-Theresien-Straße on 22 January 2012, while Venue Day Tickets will grant ticket holders access to all the competitions taking place in the respective venue on that particular day.
