Commonwealth Games bosses have revealed thousands of opening ceremony tickets have the wrong date

Organisers behind the upcoming games have been forced to respond to an embarrassing error someone at Ticketek made when printing out the almost 15,000 tickets.

WHOEVER was in charge of making sure the day was right on the tickets for the Gold Coast's Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony is in a whole lot of trouble right now.

Some 14,000 tickets for the showpiece event were printed with Thursday, April 4, when April 4 - the day for the ceremony - is a Wednesday.

"I was disappointed when Ticketek (the ticketing provider) informed us they had picked up the error", Games chief Mark Peters was quoted by reporters as saying. Mr Randhawa wrote on Twitter.

"Defence has extensive experience providing security assistance to major national events, including the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, and the 2000 Sydney Olympics", Senator Payne said.

According to Fairfax, the remaining 21,000 tickets for the opening ceremony have been corrected after the error was detected.

Ticketek had the job of printing the batch, they say there was an "error" when information was being transferred between files.
