Too many seek Anzac tickets

ABOUT three in four people wishing to attend the Anzac centenary event at Gallipoli in 2015 will miss out, with demand far outstripping the number of tickets available.

Nearly 30,000 people have entered the ballot to attend the commemoration in Turkey, but only 8000 tickets are available for Australians.

The ballot closed at midnight.

"I know there will be a lot of disappointed people," minister assisting the prime minister for the Centenary of Anzac, senator Michael Ronaldson told ABC TV yesterday.

The 8000 tickets includes 6000 general admission spots, 800 for direct descendants, 800 for veterans and 400 for school children and their guardians.
