The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) has today confirmed that tickets for the London 2012 Olympics will go on sale on Tuesday 15 March 2011 and Paralympic Games tickets will go on sale on Friday 9 September 2011.
The process for Olympic Games tickets will open for six weeks, enabling people to consider their options before making their final choices and submitting their application. Applications will close on 26 April 2011 and all oversubscribed sessions will be allocated via a ballot process.
Applications can be made at any point during the 6-week application period – it is not a first come, first served process.
LOCOG will announce full details of the purchasing process and the finalised schedule for all 650 sport sessions in February 2011. The two million people who have already signed up to the London 2012 ticketing database – www.tickets.london2012.com will receive all the information about how to apply and those who have registered will be able to use their existing log-in details to access the application process.
Further details of the application process for Paralympic tickets will be announced later this year, with prices announced in May 2011.
Triathlon tickets for the events in Hyde Park on 4 August (women) and 7 August (men) will range from £20-£60. For more information look out for issue 258’s main news story. Sign up to register your interest in London 2012 tickets at www.tickets.london2012.com.
