Up to one million tickets for the London 2012 Olympic Games became available for purchase to fans outside the United Kingdom and the European Union on March 15. Tickets are available through individual country’s National Olympics Committees or authorized ticket resellers.
In the United States, tickets may be purchased through the United States Olympic Committee’s official ticket reseller CoSport. Application for tickets will remain open through April 26 on a first-come, first-served basis.
The London Organizing Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games will conduct an automated, random selection if demand for tickets exceeds supply.
The 2012 summer games schedule became available earlier this year with 26 sporting events planned in 34 venues across the London area and beyond. The games kick off with the opening ceremony scheduled for July 27, 2012.
