Tickets for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games will go back on sale today after long delays and technical problems caused the initial launch to be suspended last week.
Around 50,000 tickets remain and they are set to be released over the next three days in a bid to manage demand on the website and phoneline.
During the initial launch, some customers were faced with hours of waiting, others were unsure if online transactions were completed and many were charged for an engaged tone when attempting to buy tickets on the phoneline.
The sale was stopped due to the problems with only half of the 100,000 tickets managing to be sold.
From 10am today, remaining seats at the opening and closing ceremonies will be available along with tickets to watch team sports such as hockey, netball and rugby sevens.
Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond has welcomed the decision taken by Glasgow 2014 organisers to drop the demolition of the Red Road flats from the Opening Ceremony.
"I think it's a sensible decision that will be widely welcomed and we've already seen indications of that," he said.
Former Scottish Socialist MSP Carolyn Leckie said she was 'relieved and extremely pleased' with the move.
"I think it's great, it's a sensible decision. I think everybody will be relieved and I think the over-17,000 people who expressed their views in the petition - making a lot of sensible comments, some of which were also based on safety - will be relieved," she said.
Plans to demolish city tower blocks as part of the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony have been scrapped.
David Grevemberg, Chief Executive of Glasgow 2014 said opinions over the past few days had changed 'the safety and security content' of the proposal.
