Glasgow 2014 organisers say they have sold 92 percent of the Commonwealth Games tickets that were available to the public for next year's event.

The remaining 76,000 tickets have now gone on sale to the general public.

They cover limited sessions and price categories in badminton, boxing, lawn bowls, rugby sevens, weightlifting and para-sport powerlifting and squash.

Of the sales so far, 57 percent have been bought by people living in Scotland, 40 percent from other parts of the United Kingdom and the remainder from non-Commonwealth countries.

Tickets to Commonwealth nations are from an additional pot, sold through the various Commonwealth Games organisations around the world.
