  1. No Gangneung is the city that is hosting the indoor venues, Donghae is only 20 mins by train to GN and GN to Alpensia is only around 25 min drive. The fast train will move everyone to Jinbu which is the main transport hub.

    Durban 2022.

    They will lose the games is what I am hearing replaced with Edmonton or Adeilade or Perth. Australia will possibly host back to back if Canada does not take it
  3. So Ric Birch walks away sayings it's a disaster - I feel for Rio everything is going wrong. Hopefully things are better soon

    Rio 2016 Tickets

    Its pretty easy really - friends and family that live in countries that include EU - so any EU ticketing agent, and then look at the list for multi agents including Cartan, Kingdom Sports, SportsWorld. Lots of tickets without packages can be picked up, just don't expect really high demand stuff unless you want to buy a package

    Rio 2016 Tickets

    All it takes is an email to Rio 2016 and they will change it - I saw a copy of the ATR contract and they can not charge this amount

    That is not allowed - if tickets are collected there is to be no delivery fee

    Rio 2016 Tickets

    This is what I was suggesting earlier - everyone in the EU going from agent to agent and these guys have heaps of tickets all selling now. I know people living in 6 of the countries they sell to and when there is over 40 they are the easiest to deal with
  9. How when booking.com only searches until one year in advance like most airlines?
  10. I love it how people thing Coates criticism of Rio 2016 was that of the IOC - he's he is an IOC VP but it was a strategic part done in order to get government into action and not rehtoric from the IOC EB

    Rio 2016 Tickets

    Accor will not have any rooms available To book a room now you need to book Olympics and Paralympics and cities outside of Rio as well as a preference for rooms for test events. I was enquiring for a group of 5 rooms and that is what was sent out. Then they have a wait list of every ATR and official operator Accor will not have rooms for the public

    Rio 2016 Tickets

    If you think CoSport is your only answer you are not thinking outside the square. Getting tickets is super easy just be creative on your approach. Friends, family, pen friends can all help you if they live outside of youf country - everyone knows someone somewhere else. You just have to make sure you know the supply and source and it's an official ATR - just don't deal in the unofficial ones

    Rio 2016 Tickets

    Do not sell on the street in brazil you will be arrested or you will have to pay your way out If you do sell do not sell for more than what you paid or its in breach of the ticket but remember your legally responsible for the ticket. If your ticket is found in the street even if you sold it to someone else and it's tracked back to an ATR they have to report who they sold the ticket to and they can cancel all your remaining tickets - it has happened in both London and Beijing so be very careful! Only sell your tickets you don't need to people you can trust and they have to come from the same territory you ticket was secured from as well or the ATR gets in trouble they in turn would cancel your remaining tickets

    Rio 2016 Tickets

    The tickets that will be sold by Rio 2016 were supposed to happen this year from December, but what I heard is that one of the ATRs mentioned here took them on and won their case, so ROCOG had to change it to June 2016 and only if the ATRs don't want the tickets anymore. It has something to do with the exclusivity contracts that were signed by the ATRs

    Rio 2016 Tickets

    I think you are onto something there Hobart. I could not see CoSport get enough tickets for swimming ever in Australia and I have hardly heard of anyone ever buying them as a ticket lottery product. It might have been late where I was but I could see on the cosport site when they went live in Australia there was lots of events including swimming. Cartan have gone live now and kingdom sports is also selling theirs as well. Just have to be creative to purchase from these guys

    Accomodation in Sochi

    The Organising Committee are now not releasing rooms back until the end of the year, making hotels very rare and difficult to find. Some hotels want 24 night minimum bookings at over US$1200 a night which is crazy.
  20. My point exactly, hence why we have not and will not see detailed seating plans Why? Because this is LOCOG and its their way of filling the gaps in their budget. What I do know from first hand experience is that when there was a Government change in the UK, part of the budget was adjusted by 160Mil pounds, so they changed the seating and increased allocations in the AA and A and Prestige Seating, and that reduced it by 100Mil pounds - simple process and no one cares really.
  21. They will have a spectator guide (or a guide for each sport which is a bit different) and it may contain generic info on the seating, but it is most certainly different for each event. I have sources of National Olympic Committees that are provided this information
  22. I agree it makes no sense but Prestige Ticketing has not stopped its still available and changes all the time. Each Athletics event, each Swimming event, each event the seating is different. You may sit in an AA seat one night and a few nights later its a B seat. These are the Games of London 2012 and this is why no one will see a seating chart because there is nothing available officially from London 2012.
  23. London 2012 will not be producing seating charts for these games because the seating will change between events depending on depand (or more like how many AA or A seats they sell through the Prestige Tickets Hospitality program)

    I have a copy of the look of the Games and I have to say its very good - creative using lights, flowers and space
