Olympic tickets go on sale

2011-03-15 12:41

London – Tickets for next year’s London Summer Olympic Games have gone on sale, and organising committee chairperson Sebastian Coe says that so far there have been no problems with the online system.

Today marks the 500-day countdown to the opening ceremony for the London Games on July 27, 2012.

Coe is urging fans not to rush to make their online applications for tickets, however. The deadline is April 26, and fans get no advantage by applying before that date.

Coe says the system “has been up since midnight. We have had no reported glitches”.

Tickets for many sports start at £20 (R225), while the top seats for the men’s 100-meter final will go for £750.
