Spectator Passes are mandatory forms of identification for spectators and guests to enter the Olympic Park, competition venues, live sites and cultural events during Sochi 2014. Spectators will need to present a ticket and a spectator pass in order to access all competition venues. Once a ticket has been purchased, all spectators can apply for spectator passes online at www.pass.sochi2014.com by using the client code provided by Flight Centre and uploading the information that Sochi 2014 requires for the application.
Alternatively, if tickets were purchased on your behalf by your National Sport Organization (NSO), the NSO will have the necessary information to assist you in completing your Spectator Pass application.
The Spectator Pass has been implemented as an additional form to enhance security on site and is issued free of charge. All spectators who intend to watch an event or enter the Olympic Park are required to obtain a Spectator Pass.
