I don't understand the London 2012 ticket site. It will list an event which lets you put the tickets in your shopping cart but when you go to request the tickets it says they are not available to buy.

I can understand if they have just been listed and huge demand as made all the tickets sell out but this event listing as been there for the last 2 days!!!

It's like putting something you like in your shopping backet at the supermarket and then when you get to the counter the member of staff tells you they are not for sale and to put them back on the shelves again.

It's not the Eventing tickets is it? They've been showing since Thursday morning I think...

However, frustrating though that is, it's not as bad as the occasions where it does come back and tell you that you have two tickets and then when you click through to pay, tells you that you now don't have any. Grrrrrrr!

I have two pairs of tickets for Diving that I will be unable to use. One is for Women's 10M Platform Diving on August 8 at 7:00 PM (DV011 Cat. B); one is for Women's 10M Platform Diving Finals on August 9 at 7:00 PM (DV013 Cat. A). I'd be happy to sell them at cost to someone who wants them. Any idea how I would go about doing that?

Thanks!

Oops! The DV011 tickets are Cat. B.

Think it was for the Hockey, they have gone now. Yes I can imagine your scenario is even worse. I wonder if you'll be able to turn up on the day and take whatever late returns/resales might come up. Take your chances so to speak.

I have a pair of tickets priced at £150 each for the Athletics (AT012) on August 9th - the tickets are based in the M blocks along the 100m straight so view should be pretty good.

Would either be looking to swap these for another event regardless of which price banding they are, or would accept face value for the pair.

Inbox me if anyone is interested in these tickets.

im sure i got a stack of spectator guides in Beijing from cosports when i picked up my tickets and they had boxs of them to give away.

i guess its a sign of the times save money in printing and make people print themselves at home.

My table tennis tickets that I ordered on May 23 arrived this morning and they are the big souvenir type. The others that I ordered the following week arrived a week earlier but were the smaller more basic ones.

Yipee - just got my hocket tickets - watching women GB team play Korea on the 31st July - only £20. I actually went to the test event and worked my way to the top of stands - the view was great even at the very top, so not bothered about the position.

Do you now have to now buy Olympic Park tickets or does your hockey tickets cover this?

Last call before I put this ticket up for LOCOG resale.

I have a SW004B ticket (£185 swimming finals session on 29th July) looking to swap with an opening ceremony (£20.12/ £150). Price difference does not matter.

Let me know asap any keen opening ceremony ticket holder who likes to swap! Thanks!
