Olympic tickets

Anyone managed to get their hands on some in the last few days?
Been looking on the official 2012 website and there have been some appearing.Cheap ones to.Saw some for the beach volleyball yesterday for £35! ..gone now though.
The website is a bit hit and miss and not sure if the ticket availability is accurate.

  • Got some kind of rowing finals for Saturday through a friend. Should be alright, a few beers in the (hopefully) sun
  • don't think I've seen an event on TV yet with all the seats filled, although the Swimming and Gymnastics look pretty well supported.
  • It's no surprise these events haven't sold out when they are asking for 455 notes for swimming on Wednesday

    Pure greed
  • You can get 100m final tickets if you have £725 to spare.

    Been looking on the website seems to be the AA rated seats which no–one can afford.
  • Tickets for 10th Aug at the stadium @ £295 each for the evening session. That's more than my season ticket.
  • It's no surprise these events haven't sold out when they are asking for 455 notes for swimming on Wednesday

    Pure greed

    That's exactly what I thought. I couldn't find anything of interest for less than £100. There's no way on Earth I could afford to take a family of four, I haven't had a pay rise for 3 years.

    There are loads of Paralympic tickets left, and at very reasonable prices.

  • My memory may be playing up but didn't Seb Coe state that any of the sponsors taking tickets nto turn up that they would be penalised?

    Over to you Seb...



  • Was at the Hockey yesterday as Mrs. Addick likes it and the stadium was pretty full but no doubt there are tickets to be had for most events although The velodrome is totally sold out I hear
  • You can buy tickets for the closing ceremony.

    Only £1500

  • The crazy thing is that these representatives from the sporting delegations of each country attending the games get a ticket/seat allocation for every event/location for every day.
    Even if they wanted to they simply cant be in two or more places at once.
    So these delgates have a ticket for every event for every day which they can't possibly attend and so they remain empty....oh what a surprise.....it's simply absurd!

    But to be fair, it is not exactly the same as watching the main olympics.
  • I've seen all the expensive tickets. But last night there were tickets appearing on the 2012 website for £20. Are they drip feeding them?
    Wondered if anyone got any?
  • Gld you said that MrOneLung......but you are right
  • Just checked the Paralympic tickets. Think we are going to go along to that. Sat night tickets for the athletics are £20
  • You can get 100m final tickets if you have £725 to spare.

    Been looking on the website seems to be the AA rated seats which no–one can afford.

    at the wrong side of the stadium no doubt, if anyone is tempted , CHECK!

    Gld you said that MrOneLung......but you are right

    To be fair you've got a better chance of seeing Team GB win a Gold, we won six more than the USA in Beijing 2008 and finished second in the final medal table.

  • you are right Poplcon and all resepct to the participants but I just don't find it that compelling to watch....sorry that's the way it is
  • Absolute disgrace. Just having a look at the eventing, which I unsuccessfully applied for. Hundreds upon hundreds of empty seats.

    I thought they said they were sorting out extra tickets and hand backs?

    You are twisting it - I have not referred to the Paralympians as not being a 'someone'
    I mean that personally I dont want to see the paralympic events, I want to see Olympic event.
    The Paralympics dont hold an attraction for me.


  • I wish i was in Greenwich Park today. Looks fecking amazing on the telly. irritated.

    Not sure, but they did just say don't turn up if you haven't got a ticket. Purchase online only the day before.
  • Got 4 tickets for a total of £70 for the para olympic athletics - happy with that - can take the family, support a good cause, have a good look around at the olympic park and not feel like i've been ripped off. If we don't win a gold soon i can see the army being asked to compete soon - they've stepped in as security and spectators, why not competitors? Shooting? Boxing?, maybe a bit of discus throwing?
