Tickets for next year’s London Olympics have gone on sale this week. Tickets are not being allocated on a first come first served basis, with everyone getting an equal chance. However to increase chances of obtaining tickets people should apply for the early rounds of the games, not just the later stages as tickets for over-subscribed events will be allocated by ballot.

Almost a third of tickets will cost £20 or less; 40 per cent will cost £30 or less; two-thirds will cost £50 or less and 90 per cent will be priced under £100. There are special prices for young people/seniors in over 220 sessions – over 60s will pay £16, with those 16 and under ‘paying their age’. Tickets for events in London will also include a travel card (zones 1-6) for the day of competition.

Everyone will need a Visa card to apply on the official London 2012 ticketing website, although hard copy versions of the ticket guides and application forms are also available from every Lloyds TSB branch.

The deadline for ticket applications is 26 April 2011. For more information and to apply online please visit
