LEXINGTON, Ky. – World Equestrian Games officials say 411,023 tickets were sold to the 16-day event that wrapped up earlier this month at the Kentucky Horse Park.
In a statement released Thursday afternoon, the WEG organizing committee announced tickets were sold in 63 countries and all 50 states. Officials say preliminary estimates show 70 percent of sales came from outside Kentucky.
An article by the Lexington Herald-Leader this week reported that WEG organizers initially planned not to publicly release the number of tickets sold. The revenue generated from ticket sales has not been announced.
Total attendance at the World Equestrian Games was 507,022, which includes volunteers, media, staff, teams, and children under 12 who did not require a ticket for entry to the park.
