London 2012 Olympic tickets

26 Apr

At midnight tonight, the window for applying for tickets to the 2012 Olympic Games closes. I have just finished my application. I applied for a range of events from athletics and cycling to judo and beach volleyball. Although I applied for fifteen events in total, I do not know how many I will eventually end up being successful in getting tickets for. The reason is that for events that are oversubscribed (most of the ones that I have applied for I imagine), a ballot will be held. Unfortunately, since money will be taken out of my account (in May) before I know which tickets I have been given (in June), I have to set aside the maximum possible amount. Oh well, I guess it makes the whole process a bit more exciting… Perhaps I can even try to work out which tickets I have been allocated from the amount of money that suddenly disappears from my account come May?

      I am not that confident. I heard today that there were three times more applications than there were tickets. The Opening ceremony is over 10 times oversubscribed!

        P.S. I like your new theme very much. However, I missed the pretty header you had on the other one.

        Thanks, I tried to include the header with this theme, but I didn’t think it looked very good.
