The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) has confirmed that tickets for the London 2012 Olympic Games will go on sale on Tuesday 15 March 2011 and Paralympic Games tickets will go on sale on Friday 9 September 2011.

The process for Olympic Games tickets will open for six weeks. Applications will close on 26 April 2011 and all oversubscribed sessions will be allocated via a ballot process. Applications can be made at any point during the 6 week application period – it is not a first come, first served process.

LOCOG will announce full details of the purchasing process and the finalised schedule for all 650 sport sessions next month. The two million people who have already signed up to the London 2012 ticketing database – – will receive all the information about how to apply and those who have registered will be able to use their existing log-in details to access the application process. 

Further details of the application process for Paralympic tickets will be announced later this year, with prices announced in May 2011.  

LOCOG Chair Sebastian Coe commented: “The Olympic Games is the greatest show on earth. This is a chance for the UK public to see the world’s greatest athletes going for gold in their home country, to see their favourite Olympic sports close up and perhaps discover a new one. Our message today is simple – mark the date in your diary and sign up to our ticketing site at to receive all the information you need to help you with the process.”
