Organisers behind the upcoming games have been forced to respond to an embarrassing error someone at Ticketek made when printing out the almost 15,000 tickets.

Human error is being blamed for a Commonwealth Games ticketing blunder, with around 14,000 tickets to the opening ceremony being accidentally printed with the wrong day on them.

About 14,000 tickets have been sent out in the past few days with the date Thursday, April 4 - but the opening ceremony is on Wednesday, April 4. Mr Randhawa wrote on Twitter.

There will be boosted security at Gold Coast Airport with Border Force officers patrolling the facility during the Games. Thousands of opening ceremony tickets had an incorrect date.

Games chief Mark Peters told reporters on Tuesday that there were no plans to reprint them.

"Everyone should be really confident this is going to be a fantastic event", he said.

According to Fairfax, the remaining 21,000 tickets for the opening ceremony have been corrected after the error was detected.

He was also confident the error wouldn't create confusion about the day of the week that the opening ceremony will be held on.

She said: "I'm ecstatic about competing in my third Commonwealth Games, and it will be a very different experience than my previous ones".

North Lanarkshire badminton stars Kirsty Gilmour and Alex Dunn have both been named in Scotland's eight-strong badminton squad for the Commonwealth Games in Australia this April.

April 4 is a Wednesday, not a Thursday.
