Update on London Games Tickets
Individual Tickets sales are closed after an initial request phase and a second phase of “a first come first served basis” orders. More than 35,000 tickets were requested by Canadians for an available 14,000 tickets.
CoSport, the COC’s official ticket supplier, and the COC will continue to work with the London Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG) in an effort to secure more tickets. If CoSport receives any additional ticket allocations, they will be offered in a subsequent sale phase. Customers should register on the CoSport website to receive updates about any future sale phases/opportunities.
LOCOG Family and Friends Ticketing Program
LOCOG is offering a special Family and Friends Ticketing Program. This is a first for an Olympic Games and means that each athlete who qualifies for London will have the option to purchase two tickets to every session in which they are competing (Exception: Aquatics – Swimming athletes will have access to one ticket per session). The program will be rolled out starting in April 2012. Further details will follow at that time.
Spectators with a ticket for a London 2012 sporting event or ceremony in London will receive a one-day Games Travelcard for the day of that event. The Games Travelcard will entitle you to free travel within Zones 1–9 on the London public transport network throughout the day of your event.
This includes London Underground (Tube), London Overground, Docklands Light Railway (DLR), buses, trams and National Rail services – but not the Heathrow, Stansted or Gatwick Express trains, or taxis and private hire vehicles.
Spectators will also be able to use their Games Travelcard on the Javelin® service between St. Pancras and Stratford International stations, to and from Watford Junction, and can enjoy a one-third discount on the price of the 2012 Games River Bus Express and 2012 Games River Tour services.
