Anyone Got The Ticket Already?


Recommended Posts

OK - based on BOCOG availability -

August 10th - Men’s Water Polo Preliminaries - limited availability (B reserve only)

August 12th - Women’s Softball Preliminaries - some availability

August 11th – Men’s and Women’s Rowing Heats - some availability

August 13th – Men’s Field Hockey Preliminaries - some availability

August 14th – Men’s Handball Preliminaries - some availability

August 13th – Men’s and Women’s Heats - what sport?

August 14th – Men’s Baseball Preliminaries - lots of tickets

August 10th – Men’s Fencing Preliminaries - very limited availability

August 11th – Men’s Beach Volleyball Preliminaries - some availability

August 12th – Men’s and Women’s Judo Preliminaries - very limited availability

However I'd expect OK availability through CoSport - except maybe the rowing, beach volleyball.

I must say I am somewhat eager to get in and fill in the Olympic ticket gaps - however I think the urgency is unfounded. If it is first come first serve per each countries allocation, you can be assured the tickets will be all over the shop. I expect a massive rush for any left over swimming and ceremony tickets - which there will be very few. Myself and Faster should be OK as we are going for second tier events.

My wishlist is -

The first Monday is the main concern as I have no tickets for that day. If I luck out I'll pop into one of the cultural installations or just stack up on the merchandise. The rest are "maybe I'll be in town" kind of deals.

Dearest Alberto,

hello! This is Colin here, do you still remember me? I met you with Desmond Chan in Singapore 2 years ago! I want to go next year to Beijing 2008 so see you there next year! Where have you been all this while? All the best to you and keep in contact! :lol::lol::lol: So glad to hear from you again!

I can not see BOCOG releasing tickets domestically when they can not get their international orders in line. There would be too much of a problem from the Agents.

From what I am being informed many Olympic Committees and IOC members are VERY upset with BOCOG about their ticketing failure. One contact also told me off the cuff that they could not even get tickets for a head of states side-kicks and that BOCOG would not issue any further swimming, Ceremony tickets and also Gymnastics and Diving.

If BOCOG released more tickets next year in the boc office, it would make the Olympic Committies and IOC members even more frustrated and angry with BOCOG. I think these games are very different to previous Games and everything that was done in the past is out the window for Beijing.

I try to call Cosport to know exactelly at what time the sale start.

The line is always busy.

How does the live sales work? Do you call in is it over the internet? I've been trying to call for the last 30 minutes straight and its non stop busy, I'm sure there's quite a bit of demand but I'd be really bothered to find out all the tickets had been snatched up by ticket brokers flooding the lines and buying up everything.

Hi Alberto,

anyone have a new prediction as to when live sales will begin?

Well nothing has been on time yet - so I predict Wednesday :(

But lets hope not. I think most of the tickets I need will be not hguely popular so should be ok. Of course I would love some Swimming but realisticly that will not happen.

No luck for me.

No Rowing Final, No Cycling Track and no Diving.

I checked for a lot of others sports, and it seems that there's not a lot of availability.

I lost a day at work for absolutelly nothing. :angry:

hi!

new to the forum--found it while trying to find out info about the cosport sale today. i was too late for the ticket request phase, and was hoping to get some equestrian tickets during the sale today, but no luck--spent the last 2 hours trying. :( very bummed. so wanted to ask if anyone has any advice/suggestions. i'm planning to be beijing starting in july (as a student/intern), so hoping i might be able to find a way to get tickets when i'm there? or else pay an exorbitant amount to a scalper?--which i don't want to do and don't know if i have the money too either. anyway, any ideas/suggestions would be much appreciated...

thanks!

Well that was pointless. I had 12 sessions in my cart, went to purchase and then my cart was empty. Soooooooooo I go back and everything I had now shows as 'sold out'. Looks like I'll get my extra tickets in Beijing without the f*cking 'fulfillment fee' because that was just plain bullshit.

12 sessions, on top of tickets you got from phase one? Consider yourself fortunate, there are those without any.

All I got was the original phase 1 allotment - I couldn't purchase any tickets today as the system deleted everything in my cart.

I do consider myself fortunate - however anyone could have got tickets in Phase 1 (admittedly probably not to that many events) if they were organised at the time - so there is no need anyone else to play the 'woe is me' card either.

I am frustrated - but it's not the end of the world. I'll get what I can in Beijing.

I guess Australians are more interested in the olympics, because there is still tonnes of b level events on cosport Canada.

CP got 70+ tickets, so it can be done, it just depends on what you want.

I ran into one of my old teachers on the weekend and he is planning on going to Beijing, he applied for every single final swimming session and got 6/10, plus 4 gymnastics tickets, 2 diving, both rowing finals and a ceremonies ticket, so he was really lucky.

just fyi, it seems like tickets are still available on the cosport site despite it seeming quite the opposite an hour or so ago -- i was looking at all of the equestrian events, and all of them were showing as sold out, but kept refreshing the page and then 3 of them changed to available and i was able to get tickets! not the exact events that i wanted, but now i have tickets!

thanks Scientifik!
