The early access period to request tickets for next year's Pan Am Games in Toronto will begin Sept. 15.

Organizers will use a lottery system for high-demand events to ensure fans have equal access to tickets. There will be over 400 ticketed events for the July 10-26 Games and almost 1.4 million tickets will be available.

Ticket prices will range from $20-$140 for athletic events and $90-$350 for the ceremonies.

``We've gone with the theme of, 'Affordable, Fun and Accessible,' and we want families to show up,'' said organizing committee CEO Saad Rafi.

Tickets can be requested via the Games' website or by phone. The request phase will last for three weeks and end on Oct. 6.

Customers will receive an email in late November to let them know whether their ticket requests were successful, organizers said. Any remaining tickets will then go on sale in December on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Athletics medal events ($80-$140) and swimming ($40-$140) are two of the more expensive events at the Games. Competitions like baseball ($20-$35), soccer ($20-$35) and rugby sevens ($20-$45) are on the cheaper side.

``Best of all, our tickets are priced to be affordable for families _ more than 75 per cent will be $45 or less,'' Rafi said. ``Our ceremonies and gold-medal event tickets will be in great demand, so we encourage everyone to plan their Games experience now.''

The opening ceremonies, featuring a performance by Cirque du Soleil, will range from $100-$350.

Ticket prices for the closing ceremonies will range from $90-$200. That event will feature entertainment acts to be confirmed at a later date.

About 6,000 athletes from 41 countries are expected to participate at the Games.

Information on tickets for the Aug. 7-15 Parapan Am Games will be released at a later date.
