Sochi medalsWe’ve gotten the news that Tokyo won the bid to host the Olympic Games. But before we can wrap our heads around the year 2020, it’s time to start planning for the 2014 Games in Sochi, Russia.

The next Games will run February 7 to the 23, which, when it comes to planning, is right around the corner.

Citizens of the Russian Federation got first pick of tickets, so many have already been snapped up, and phase two will be this fall. CoSport is the authorized ticket vendor for Sochi Olympics tickets USA, and they’re already selling event ticket and hotel packages. Remember, you can only use a Visa card to buy your tickets, since they’re a major sponsor
