  1. no email as yet but if you log on to your cosports account it has ticket quantity. 45 sessions requested over 3 accounts and i got 3
  2. i looked yesterday and didn't think the prices were to bad. logged in today and have added AUD to the cost and its gone up. guessing yesterday it was in USD. Looks like cosport are still robbing us with a 20% fee. If i get half the tickets i requested im not going to be able to afford flights and accommodation.
  3. Was expecting to find out results of the ballot on Thursday 20th of June but cosport have now updated the website to be results TBA. Also notices Kingsports another ATR to most of the pacific nations is not issuing ballot results until 9th of July they are also waiting on pricing to be finalised.
  4. Good news is they are non binding so in the last few days i set my friends up with accounts and requested more tickets. Its like getting free lottery tickets.
  5. for Rio i had 2 account and submitted the same requests on both accounts. Requested 13 sessions on each account and got 0/13 and 3/13 all at lower ticket category. Also found this in the ticket request conformation Something Cosport have never done before so this might suggest that price conformation will not be completed before the 31 May cut of date.
  6. I have a few accounts but in different Names address and credit cards and have done this for the last 3 games. you just might find you end up with extra tickets that you have to try and get ride of but that generally not to hard.
  7. Just called Cosport Australia and spoke to a lovely lady who was very helpful (unusual for Cosports) they are till waiting for pricing approval. Cosport set prices/fees then AOC have to approve and then Tokyo 2020 have to approve, its awaiting Tokyo's approval. She was sure it would be approved before the 31 May cut off date. If for some reason the prices were not approved before 31 May she said submit your request and any tickets you got that were over your budget they would let you cancel just the tickets that were to expensive. The exchange rate and fees are capped and can not ex
  8. can i attach a pdf on here or is that just for premium? message me your email and i can send you a copy.
  9. JPY ticket prices and venue category map can be found here. I did have to us a VPN to download as im not in Japan it just send me to the ATR list. https://tokyo2020.org/en/games/ticket/type/
  10. Cosport is now live and lets you request tickets for all session and categories but no prices. How can you plan a budget for tickets without prices.
  11. At this stage i haven't even found what the costs are in JPY normally there is a pdf with all session cost and ticket categories. Im amusing they will do the usual JPY to USD at an inflated rate then USD to AUD at another inflated rate plus the $50 delivery fee. Japaneses ticket site goes live in about 30 min so hopefully i will be able to see the JPY cost per session.
  12. Swimming finals in the morning is much better for spectators than 10pm start time like in was in Rio. I did 2 nights of swimming and didnt get back to my accommodation until 2.30am I have already started my spreadsheet with must see events and very much looking froward to paying Cosport an exaggerated exchange rate and service fee for little to no service.
  13. Only ones i missed are hockey finals but hopeful pick some up between now and April. Athletics, Basketball W SF, Rugby 7s final and closing ceremonies. Also found a swap or buy/sell tickets account on twitter @gc2018tix so hopefully that will get me some tickets like twitter did at London Olympics
  14. By far the most ridiculous bid i have ever heard of. I think someone got the date wrong for this announcement April 1 is April fools day. I live in Ballarat and the venues they are suggesting here are in need of more than an upgrade to bring them up to standard. Dont even get me started on travel times between venues. Each sport would have to have its own village as the shortest travel time would be almost 2 hours. The wont be the peoples games the will be the sitting on a bus for hours games.
  15. i wonder if they are going to relay the paving in Olympic Park? By the time i was last at Olympic park on 12th August it was already in very poor condition in some areas with areas already cordoned off due to lifting pavers. Can only imagine what conditions it is in now after Paralympics and the dismantling of temporary venues.
  16. the price they charge for accommodation you would think they could do better than 8% Do you think transport concerns or just lack of interest is keeping people away?
  17. why have the 2022 Comm games suddenly become more appealing to cities? less than 2 years ago Durban won it unopposed now we have a dozen cities willing to take over the hosing. I know Edmonton dropped out due to falling oil prices and falling economy but has that improved that much. It will be interesting to see how many of these potential host for 2022 go ahead and bid for 2026.
  18. I was lucky enough to attend a function last week and hear a current IOC speak about there sporting and professional life. After his talk i spoke to him about the 2024 bids. I started off by asking him to vote for LA as i feel its a much easier sell to the wife for a family holiday. He thought that was quite funny. We then got into the bids a little more and he said it was a 2 horse race but i think we all knew that anyway. He also said both Paris and LA were great bids with neither of them needing to build may new venues. The only thing he thought would be the difference was that Paris h
  19. looks like blue is going to be a strong colour. Strange considering the flag is red and white.
  20. charge $30 for spectator guide then not have any in stock when you pick up tickets sorry no refunds. Anyone get stuck with rowing tickets that got cancelled? love to know if cosports gave a refund but i think i know the answer!
  21. I went on 7th August they had a line for people with tickets for sessions that day or who had lined up on previous days. Wait was about 15 min so not to bad. I think cosports could make it easier in Tokyo by using e tickets or reducing cost of postage. Au$47 for a small paper envelop is extremely overpriced and clearly an attempt to make more money.
  22. I did love the street/train paddlers on the train to Deodoro drinks, chips, chocolates and dish sponges!
  23. Aus team sports have been very disappointing all but Woman rugby and men Basketball were beaten in quarter finals or earlier. Swimming still has some issues even after major review from London. Aus had 10 individual medals at swim worlds in 2015 of those 10 Rio return was 1 silver. 15 Swimmers before Rio were ranked in top 3 and Rio return was 3 medals 1 gold and 2 silvers. Cycling and hockey also has a issue with underperforming. Boomers could be the biggest success of the games. I spent 8 days in Rio 22 sessions over 9 sports. No muggings, robberies or Zika. Can honestly
