Still a chance to get 2012 tickets

SEATS AVAILABLE: Tickets still remain for Olympic events

ALL IS not lost for those that have so far missed out on tickets for next year’s London Olympics.

A million extra tickets will go on sale next Spring. The tickets, including thousands for all the most popular events, were held back from sale earlier this year while seating plans were finalised.

There will be several thousand tickets available for both the opening and closing ceremonies, which were massively oversubscribed, as well as other sought-after events like the athletics finals.

It is still to be decided how the remaining tickets will be sold. It is likely that those who applied this year, and were unsuccessful, will be given priority.

A spokeswoman for the London 2012 organising committee, LOCOG said that the organisation's focus is currently on the sale of Paralympic tickets, which continues until September 26.

The spokesperson said: "In December, we will put 1.5 million Olympic football tickets on sale on a live system. The remaining one million Olympic tickets, to all sports, will go on sale to the British public next year from the contingency seats, once venues are tested and licensed, and operational plans are completed."
