"This is the second important step after the 100,000 mark. We are very satisfied with that, which has never been seen six months before the start of a European Athletics Championship," said Frank Kowalski, Managing Director of the European Athletics Championship, on Saturday before the start of the German Indoor Championships in Dortmund.

"Athletics can provide goose bumps for over a week," said Jürgen Kessing, President of the German Athletics Federation (DLV). 

Of the 150,000 tickets sold so far, more than 30 percent were sold abroad with orders from 46 countries. "The target is about 350,000 spectators," said Kowalski.
