Rio de Janeiro: Fans can begin registering for tickets to the Rio 2016 Olympics in November with prices starting at less than $20, officials said.

The most expensive tickets are for the opening ceremony, where the best seats will be available for almost $2,000, reports Xinhua.

Track and field, basketball and indoor volleyball have the highest single-session prices at about $515.

The price is about half the cost of tickets to the final of the 100m final at the London 2012 Games.

Half of the tickets in Rio will be available for $30 or less.

"(This) allows access to the Games for the largest possible number of fans," the organizing committee said in a video published on the official Rio 2016 website.

Applications for tickets will begin in March 2015 with a second sales phase planned for July.
