New Delhi: Swimming, badminton, tennis and hockey are the biggest crowd pullers at the Commonwealth Games, officials said on day three of the competition Thursday.

'The finals for tennis and badminton are sold out, and so is the India-Pakistan hockey match,' an official at the ticket enquiry office said.

'All the tickets for the India-Australia hockey match tomorrow have been sold. There are a lot of enquiries for tennis, badminton, swimming and hockey events,' the official added.

Empty seats for various events have caused worry among the organisers. The organisers are appealing to people to buy tickets and 'cheer the sports stars'.

According to the official, most people seem to be eager to watch the semi-finals or finals of various events.

The Games began Oct 3 and will end Oct 14 with a closing ceremony.
