Tickets for the London 2012 Olympic Games go on sale from today – Tuesday, March 15. Applications for Olympic Games tickets can be made for a six week period, finishing on April 26, 2011.
London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG) stresses that tickets are not going to be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Applications for tickets should be made via the official London 2012 ticket site.
Those wishing to apply for a ticket online have to be resident in the UK or designated European country, be aged over 16 and have a valid Visa credit/debit card. Payments are restricted to the use of Visa cards since the company is an official London 2012 ‘worldwide sponsor’.
Only one application per Visa card/email address can be made.
If any of the 650 sports session are oversubscribed – and most, including the cycling events, will be – then final ticket allocation will be run on a ballot system.
Tickets for the London 2012 Paralympic Games will be available from September 9, 2011. Tickets for London 2012 test events will be available later this year.
