Registration is open for fans who want to attend the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games!
Entry to competition and cultural events will be given to anyone who holds a Youth Olympic Pass.
The pass provides access to the four Youth Olympic Parks as well as standalone venues, as long as maximum capacities have not been reached.
Passes are free-of-charge, but must be collected.
The pass comes in the form of a wristband or bracelet, with an electronic chip embedded in.
Anyone who wants to enter a Youth Olympic Park or any competition stadium must wear a bracelet.
But don’t worry if you’re not from Buenos Aires!
Spectators arriving from outside the Argentine capital, or from overseas, will be able to pick up their pass when they arrive in the city.
And thanks to an agreement with Worldwide TOP Parner Samsung, who are presenting the passes, they will also be available at Samsung stores.
The online registration can be found here, with only basic personal information required.
Up to three children can also be registered with each application.
Passes can be collected at any of the four Youth Olympic Parks from 6 to 18 October, or from one of 11 Samsung stores.
An authorised third party can also be named to pick up the passes.
Range of activities
With the pass, holders will be able to see 4,000 young athletes compete in 32 sports across 286 sessions.
There will also be 468 ‘sport initiation’ sessions and 800 educational activities held across the Youth Olympic Parks.
Competition begins on 7 October, the day after the Youth Olympic Torch Relay ends at the Opening Ceremony.
The relay will visit 17 cities across Argentina, covering over 14,000 kilometres.
