London Olympics outlines ticket resale procedures

The London 2012 Organising Committee (LOCOG) has confirmed details of its ticket resale process for Olympic and Paralympic ticket holders.

Those who have bought tickets directly from LOCOG before January 6th 2012 will be able to resell their tickets via the London 2012 ticketing website from this date until February 3rd 2012.

The resale process will allow those who are no longer able to attend or no longer want their tickets to sell them to other sports fans and help ensure that venues are full next summer.

How the process works

Those who purchased tickets from LOCOG will be able to choose which tickets they wish to resell via their ticketing account on the ticketing website.

Tickets submitted for resale will be made available online for other customers to purchase on an ongoing basis.

If sold, the seller will receive the full face value of the tickets.

If the tickets remain unsold they will be returned to the ticket holder’s account.

A further opportunity for ticket holders to try and resell any unwanted tickets will open in spring 2012. 

Secure sales

LOCOG chief executive Paul Deighton said: “This resale programme will give those who wish to use it an opportunity to securely sell their tickets to others who wish to go to the Games, or purchase more tickets and help us to achieve our aim of having full venues.”

Remaining tickets for the Olympic Football Tournament and the Paralympic Games are currently on sale until February 6th 2012, when the seat allocation process will begin.

Contingency tickets and those not sold by this date will be made available for sale from spring 2012.
