Hey, Hobart.

I've just tried this link out. It seems, there are some inconsistencies regarding info accuracy. Pay attention.

Cosport US online sales to start at 2:00 PM (14:00) US Eastern time today.

They've got a countdown timer and everything. And they claim they've got some new technology that will queue users up so the system won't be overwhelmed. I'm still a bit skeptical, but it looks like they might have actually updated the Compaq 486 that's been running the show.

Cross your fingers folks.

Well cosport wasn't a total loss. My friend got us a set of tickets to a gymnastics and swimming event. She started as 1200 in line and I was about 1800something. By the time I logged in a lot were gone. Hope everyone did well and got a few of what they wanted!! Now we wait and see about the rest! Any advice on the best way to try and snag a pair of tickets to Opening Ceremony??

Well, that was a bit less than 3 of my life that are now lost. I was on from a little after 1:00. At 2 I got the word that I was # 2,687 in line and had over an hour to wait. At a little after 3:30 I got into the site to find whole sports blank, and just a few stray tickets for minor sports (other than the track tickets, which I already had anyway) that I didn't want.

Ended up getting nothing. More than a little disheartening and infuriating, but just a really bad luck of the draw I guess. However, if anyone wants some pretty good Athletics tickets for evening medal sessions, there seem to be some of those left.


I guess we'll just have to wait for the next batch released. Hopefully, we won't get hosed by their queuing system next time, or they will actually release a decent number of tickets. Anyone have any idea when they may be releasing tickets from unsold tour packages?

Looks like the packages stay available until July, so I guess after then?

I don't think anyone has been able to score Opening tickets. In prior years was able to buy them on Ebay but even they don't show any opening tickets available.

CoSport USA had a very small quantity back in mid November. Saw them when I randomly checked the website.

Wish I would have seen them. Would have picked them up in a heartbeat.

It was pure luck from checking the website loads of times during the day. If only it would happen with some GA tickets.

Got number 511 with the indication more than an hour to wait

It was in fact 35 minutes

Since I got a lot tickets and Phase 1 and 2 I was only looking for swimming tickets

No luck for me

No purchase for me

Is it better to just grab tickets from other ATRs? Or risk waiting? Not sure if I trust shipping to get to me in time.

If you have reasonably easy access to tickets you want from other ATRs then I would go for them. Especially ceremony tickets, since those are always in extremely short supply.

I wouldn't trust CoSport's shipping if I was you. It's not entirely their fault since the organizers usually don't release the actual tickets until about a month out from the games (in order to minimize scalping they claim). But for London they fell so far behind in sorting their tickets that they had to have a lot of people pick them up after they arrived in London. Also, several of us had tickets missing from our shipment that we had to then pick up in London.

Do you have any previous experience with Dertour? I'm just worried that my friend in the UK won't be able to ship them to me in time.

There is always the possibility that tickets will be very late. I know for the London games, we purchased some tickets from Germany and they were very late coming. Our contact there only got the tickets to us a couple of days before the games started (since it was so late, we had him ship the tickets to our hotel in London).

So where are people at? Please post your complete day by day schedules thus far so I can be jealous... (well not completely jealous as I will be heading to Greenland/Iceland in summer 2016 instead).

I was waiting for my result at the Cosport release today before publishing my agenda for Rio

Since I got nothing (was hoping only for SW008, SW012 and RO007), no update to make to my list :

(sorry for somes french words)

When there's a number after the ticket code, it's the number of final for that event (so, a big total of 67, almost the same amount I saw at the Beijing Game)

And i thought our schedule was full. But when i see yours ........

We could meet at 11 events.

But i think there's no time for you to have a chat or a beer before or after the event.

For the London Games, when I received my tickets from Cosport, there was one missing (gymnastic). They know about it and wrote me a letter saying that I will have to pass to their office for picking it.

It was a huge problem for me since the missing ticket was for 15h00 the same day I arrived.

My plane landed around 8h00. I had to grab the ticket, and then check-in with my lugagge at my hotel before going to the event. There was huge distance between each points but I was able to make it

I travelled to Buenos Aires twice, and Belgrano was one of my favourite parts of the City :) That`s the reason for the nickname

Anyone that has applied for tickets through Sportsworld should check their accounts as they've just done a January ticket allocation! And I've scored Opening Ceremony tickets!! Can't believe it!
