With the London 2012 Olympic Games fast approaching, more ticketing information has finally become available. Ticket applications for the nearly 8.8 million available tickets will be accepted between March 15 and April 26, 2011, while applications for the for Paralympic Games tickets will open on September 9.
Don't worry if you're a procrastinator, this is one case where it doesn't matter if you submit an application for tickets on the first day or last because London 2012 is using a random selection process for those sessions in which the demand is greater than the number of available seats. If you do score tickets, payments will need to be made between May 10 and June 10.
Tickets for the games start at £20 with special prices available for kids under 16 and seniors over 60.
For those in the U.S., applications will need to be processed via the local National Olympic Committee (NOC) and the National Paralympic Committee (NPC). For NOC or NPC contact details, you can register your interest with London 2012 now and they will make all of the needed information available to you. Or, you can wait until March 15, when all of the ticketing details and contact information will be posted at tickets.london2012.com/. Good Luck!
