Over 1 million people who applied for the London 2012 Olympics tickets failed to be allocated tickets. The London 2012 Organising Committee (LOCOG) confirmed today that 2.3 million tickets will be available in the second round of London 2012 Olympic tickets sales, which is also open to the 1.9 million people who applied in the initial round.
The first chance to apply will be on 24th June at 6am and this will run until 6pm on July 3rd. This is only open to those who applied in the initial application phase and were not allocated any tickets. Another chance will open for those who did receive some or all of the tickets they applied for in the first round of sales. This will open on July 8th at 6am to July 17th at 6pm.
The difference is, the second round of sales will work on a first come first serve basis, unlike the original ticket sales system. Applicants will be notified whether their request for tickets has been successful or not between 24 to 48 hours after the request is submitted. Payment will be taken after the 10 day process, over a period of up to four days – and applicants will then be notified that the transaction and ticket purchase is complete – again please make sure that you have sufficient money in your account for the transaction to take place. You will receive an email inviting you to re-apply, I just received mine.
Some bad news for gymnastics fans is that Artistic Gymnastics, Rhythmic Gymnastics and Trampolining are confirmed as sold out. See what other sports are sold out here.
