I have been advised today by cosports that my tickets will not be sent to me as they are still waiting for tickets from Rio.

Have asked if they can send what they have and I collect what's missing in Rio.

Called Cosport today

They said it's longer in my case because I have a lot of invoices under the same account and they want to make only one shipment.

They told me It should be ship this week

Why on my Athletics Category D tickets the Block number is listed but NOT the seat numbers. Instead of seat numbers it says General Admission. Does it mean they didn't finish building the stadium before printing the tickets? :). Or maybe that's how Category D works. My Category B tickets for a different day have the seats assigned. Hmm... anyone else have this issue?

Some venues will be operated with general admission seating.

In most of these cases the tickets will be assigned to a block or sector but not to a specific row or seat.

all Deodoro locations, Riocentro pavillons, Lagoa Stadium, Fort Copacabana, Olympic Stadium, only Cat. D for AT and FB.

As I understand it, the category D tickets for Track are in the temporary stands that have been erected at either end of the stadium. Those seats are general admission. I believe the rest of the stadium will have assigned seats.

There are apparently several other venues with unassigned general admission seating (as noted above). My Badminton, Table Tennis, Canoeing, and Equestrian tickets are all general admission. An interesting choice. This was also the case for most events at the '88 Seoul Olympics (where, believe it or not, the entire main stadium was general admission!). The explanation there was that local Korean spectators were just not used to the concept of assigned seats, and would be confused by it.

So, is assigned seating just not a regular thing in Brazil? Or is this another sign of things that have gone undone as the organizers fell behind?

Cosports have advised my tickets are now enroute. I had ordered tickets after the cut off date so that was the issue apparently.

General admin sounds like a good chance of getting from a cat C seat to a cat A seat

Here is a good question. Does anyone know on which side of the stadium (Olympic Stadium) will be the finish line? I'm trying to figure this out so I can sit closer to it. The closer to Usain Bolt the better :). Thanks.

Never mind. After 3hours of research I figured it out (brazilian youtube videos helped). Finish line is on the OESTE side (west side) entrance. Probably near block 104/105.

We clearly see the track on the map of the venue

The start of the 100m is around section 111 and the finish around 104

In the likely event of being mugged and having a bag stolen with paper Olympic tickets in them can they be replaced?

no info on paper ticket just on e tickets. I have messaged them but don't think I will get a reply.

Sadly I've had the same thought.

I have a stack or pre paid credit cards to take so if they do get me they can't get much $$ and I will still have access to money.  It's easy to stuff a credit card down your pants but the Olympic tickets are quite large.

I would buy them :D

Anyway, has anybody tried out the resale program on the rio2016.com?

 

I returned 2+2+2 electronic tickets for resale but I wanted to withdraw two of them, sent an email, called them many times and nothing really happened.
