Olympic tickets - prices and competition schedule

  • Published: Tuesday, 15 February 2011

Roughly 8.8 million tickets will be available for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, with another two million for the Paralympic Games. Ticket prices, and the dates tickets will go on sale, have now been announced. The sporting schedule has also been published, letting you know what happens when.

When tickets go on sale

You can register your interest now and be the first to get all the latest ticketing news and information before tickets go on sale.

You can actually apply for tickets between 15 March and 26 April 2011. This is only a request for tickets. There is no advantage to submitting your application on the first day or the last day.

For sessions where demand is greater than supply, London 2012 will use an automated and random selection process ('ballot') to allocate tickets as fairly as possible.

If you're successful, payment will be taken between Tuesday 10 May 2011 and Friday 10 June 2011. You will be notified of any tickets you have been allocated by 24 June 2011.

Applications for Paralympic Games tickets will open on 9 September 2011 and will follow a similar sales process. Further details of the application process for the Paralympic Games tickets will be announced later this year, with prices announced in May 2011.
