HEMPSTEAD: The first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump may be one of the most hyped events in US politics, but the hosts managed overlook one small detail.

The name of the Democratic nominee, the first woman in American history to win a major party nomination for president, was misspelled on souvenir tickets handed out to students at Hofstra University.

The tickets given to 350 students who won coveted seats in a lottery to attend the debate misspelled Clinton's first name -- "Hilary" -- TV networks NBC and CBS reported.

"These tickets are not official tickets to the debate," Hofstra University spokeswoman Karla Schuster told AFP in a statement.

"They were printed at the last minute to create a souvenir for the students who won the ticket lottery," she added. "We will reprint them."

The official tickets to the debate did not include the names of either Clinton or her Republican rival Trump.

Hofstra previously hosted presidential debates in 2008 and 2012. Founded in 1935, it is a private university of 10,870 students 25 miles (40 kilometers) east of New York in Hempstead, Long Island.
