Any got Olympics tickets?

Just wondered if anyone else got tickets for 2012 and if so for what.


Got an e-mail today saying i have tickets to the Badminton and Rowing.


Not that happy really. Not sure i still want to go.


I'm going to try and get tickets to the hockey but i'll see how i feel

Re: Any got Olympics tickets?

I'm actually going to be in Europe during this time, and I'm going to especially make sure I'm not in London, England or anywhere near those islands.

I really don't like casually watching sports anymore except tennis obviously. But I'm not really interested in Olympic tennis either.

But good luck and have fun.

Re: Any got Olympics tickets?

I applied for so much and what did I get? Morning tickets for the athletics on the fourth day. Just heats and qualifying. I hope all of the casual fans who've whored up the tickets have a really sucky time.

Re: Any got Olympics tickets?

^ At least you got something.

I got nothing.

My London council taxes are funding the Olympics yet I can't attend any event .

So much for London 2012 .

When it comes to next August, I'm taking a one month holiday and renting out my flat for extortionate amounts of money.

Which I will then use to fund someone to wipe that smug grin off Lord Coe's face.

This. Except I got nothing

It's ridiculous how some people applied for 10s of thousands of £s worth of tickets, and now they're complaining they have to cough up thousands of pounds Yet the majority who probably only applied for a couple of things (the sensible ones) got nothing.

But don't worry - we get first dibs on the leftovers

Don't complain, I applied for a lot and got nothing.

But I know of people that got loads! Very unfair.

So much for a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Re: Any got Olympics tickets?

Is this gonna be the same as previous Olympics where they say that everything's sold out but we get fed pictures of empty stadiums like in Athens?

Re: Any got Olympics tickets?

Could well be. But most of the empty seats will be due to corporate tickets not general sales ones
