London 2012 – Here We Come!
That’s right, last night I bought 4 tickets for the Aquatics Centre and 4 tickets for the Olympic Stadium (including the 100m final event). And all for £100. So my family and I will finally get to savor the atmosphere of the London 2012 Olympic Park, first hand.
All of the hype about it being so difficult to buy tickets has baffled me, I managed to book my seats quite easily (but there is a knack to finding the tickets for a decent price, find out how to book your seats for London 2012 further down this page).
And as for cost, not too much to moan about there! The tickets on offer were very reasonably priced. Yes, I have to admit that the cheapest tickets for the Aquatics Centre had all sold out but the next price bracket was still affordable.
So we can now look forward to seeing the Olympic flame burning in the beautiful Cauldron, witnessing Athletics in the best arena that the UK has to offer, including events such as the 100m, 200m & the 5000m track races plus various field events such as long jump and discus. We will be able to experience the 15000 seater Aquatics Centre and cheer on the British swimmers as they go for glory and aim to bag more gold medals than they did in Beijing!
How To Get Tickets for London 2012
If you follow these step by step instructions you too should be able to get tickets for the Olympics Stadium (Athletics Events) or maybe for the Aquatics Centre:
Step 1: Logon to the website http://www.tickets.london2012.com/
Step 2: Select ‘Sign In’ and login to the website – I think you need to register on the london 2012 website before you can sign in. I did this months ago when I first tried to get some tickets so luckily for me it was a very quick process – all I had to do was to remember my username and password.
Step 3: Click on the ‘Search Events’ tab at the top of the website
You may find that using the default search settings you struggle to find reasonably priced tickets for anything other than the football, but here comes the little gem of information that opens up a whole raft of ticketing options for you:
Step 4: Before you select your event and/or venue and/or date, just click on the tab labelled ‘Paralympic Events’. (Doing this seems to refresh the page and I lost my search criteria the first time I did it – but it is worth the headache because I don’t think many people know about it and so there seems to be plenty of tickets left in this category)
Step 5: Enter (or re-enter) your search criteria, including sport, venue, dates etc and ‘BINGO!’ you should be presented with loads of ticket options that include some of the really top events. And all at a reasonable price
