Back Softball, the campaign to get softball reinstated on the Olympic program in 2016, received a significant boost recently with news that attendance at the softball games this August at the Summer Games in Beijing should be at or near capacity. The International Softball Federation, the world governing body for the sport, has learned that tickets for all four of the medal round games are sold out, and those for the 28 round robin games are 90% sold.

Fans around the world still wishing to purchase tickets for softball games at the upcoming Olympics in Beijing are being encouraged to do so now while there is still availability for the round robin portion of the tournament. Australia, Canada, China, Chinese Taipei, Japan, the Netherlands, USA, and Venezuela are set to compete from August 12-21.
