Some 150,000 spectators will be invited to attend the 2022 Winter Games, vice president of the Beijing Organizing Committee Yang Shu’an said on Thursday.

Shu’an said Olympic venues will be split evenly between spectators from inside the “closed loop” system, which separates Games-related personnel from the public, and those living outside of it. 

The 150,000 spectators from outside the closed loop will include international people residing in mainland China, diplomatic personnel, marketing partners, winter sports enthusiasts, residents, and local students, he said.

Spectators inside the closed loop will consist of members of the Olympic family, national Olympic committee delegations, athletes, media representatives and broadcasters, Shu’an added.

On Jan. 17, the IOC said tickets for the Games would not go on sale for international visitors or the general public, citing Covid-19 concerns. Instead, it decided groups of spectators would need to be invited to fill the stands.
