I ordered from the website but I used the "Application" link near the bottom. It allowed me to order Section F.

Quote from here http://www.mos2013.org/en/news/6205.htm :
"Currently you can book different ticket packages for seats in the sector B2 at the official competition website http://www.mos2013.com (section “Ticket Sales”). You can also make a preliminary application for seats in any sector through the form at the same page."
The link: http://iaaf.arena-market.ru/preorder.do?new (ALLSpeed wrote about the same thing above, I guess).

actually i love to be there non nov 14, when usa plays russia in soccer

saw the 1-0 win over portugal, and with northern ireland draw in portugal, even if russia loses there they will still have 1 point over portgal, and it would seem to me, only, isreal can keep russia from going to brasil,

and uou did beat them 4-0

looks like klinmsann will bring a B team, so i suspect capello will use a 2nd team too

The applications in other sections had been ignored until the last day or two, when Allspeed and others finally received responses to their inquiries. The system would work a lot easier if one could select seats in ALL sections, not just B2. My feeling is that the promoters are trying to sell the poor seats in B2 to put bodies in them so the place will look packed when cameras zoom in on sprinters in the blocks. It's odd that the entire top tier on the backstretch is going to be covered with banners, much like Daegu (although in Daegu, the entire top tier on the homestretch was also covered). Anyways, some of us have now received the applications and we'll have to wait and see how quickly we get responses after sending in the applications, since at this time we still don't have tickets. It's not all negative, though. I'm very happy with the reasonable pricing for the tickets. Good seats can be purchased for as little as $220 for the entire meet, a price that would have roughly been good for one morning session at the Olympics.

If they're doing that, it's probably because they figure the alternative would be thousands of empty seats (which I believe is why they did something similar in Daegu). Nobody wants to see that. The Moscow Olympic stadium seats about 80,000. I'm disappointed, but not surprised, that they don't think they can fill it. In such matters, you have to trust the judgment of the locals.

Do you mean that Russia will play by second squad? I am sure that we'll see the first team against USA, because a rival is very good and interesting :) I bet it will be a tie.
And by the way, the game will take place in Krasnodar, not in Moscow.

I guess it will be excellent, if at least a 2/3 of entire stadium will be filled. Actually there are 76000 seats in Luzhniki, and 72000 tickets were on sale prior football match Russia - Portugal (first rows of seats usually are empty due safety). So 50000 spectators on evening session - it will be very good. I don't even say about morning sessions. Unfortunately, an interest of the locals (especially in Moscow) is low. But Moscow is much closer to Europe than Daegu, so I hope we'll see many european fans.

it was cold and rainy for the 1-0 win over portugal, great counter attack goal early, and basically defended it the whole game, ronaldo was a non factor

usa domestic league has semi finals, so donovan is unlikely to play

also the players who play in mexico won't play, and there are a couple

krasnodar is more southern and is a 2018 world cup venue i think

from what i hear, there will be a good euro and american presence, compared to daegu, but dageu was very cheap, and the prices i get for moscow are easily double daegu

today is the 10th annivsery of the chechen terror attack in moscow where 130 russians died

most died due to the spetznatz using a chemical gas which knocked out the chechens and the hostages, but recovery from the gas was very poor

I'm not really surprised they think they can't fill it cause attendance at Russian meetings and Russian Champs is so sad :?
But I'd rather see empty seats than banners! Watching banners is really sad.

Track and field sometimes reminds me of musicians I really love and get to see in small clubs. On the one hand, I want the artist to get bigger and move onto a larger stage and then there's the side that enjoys being able to watch top flight talent without fighting too hard or paying too much for good tickets. Maybe they should photograph a full house for a soccer game and then just overlay the pictures of people in top deck seats onto the banners? Might fool the people at home. :D

"The famous Luzhniki Stadium, which staged the 1980 Olympic Games has a current capacity of 80,000 but will be remodeled so that 50,000 seats are available to the general public as well as the seats that will be used by teams, VIPs and media."

I find this PATHETIC as much as I HEART Athens 1997.
