Rio de Janerio, May 1: The deadline for Brazilian residents to apply for the first batch of Rio 2016 tickets has been extended to May 6, the organisers said. The origil April 30 cut-off was pushed back following Thursday’s announcement that Sao Paulo’s Itaquerao stadium would host Olympic football matches. Brazilian residents will be able to enter two draws for Olympic tickets, but only those who apply in the first draw will be eligible for the second.

Non-residents of Brazil can purchase tickets via authorized resellers in their territory. The Itaquerao joins the Maraca and Olympic Stadium (Rio de Janeiro), Fonte Nova Are (Salvador), Amazonia Are (Maus), Mane Garrincha Stadium (Brasilia) and Mineirao (Belo Horizonte) as Rio 2016 football host venues.
