    Applied for Olympic tickets?

    How much will you be stung for if you get them all?

    I've gone for the opening ceremony, 100m final, some gymnastic qualifiers. Will be £600 odd if I get theml.

    According to bbc.co.uk/new…286 somebody faces £22k bill if they get all of theirs (which they won't obviously)

    Anybody else?

    Yep

    I think you can resell nearer the time if you can't make it - only through their system though, so no profit to be made

    About £500 for 7 tickets oO
    3 for the opening ,2 basketball quater finals and 2 for basketball finals ..... i hear you get charged before they even let you know which ones you've got!

    opening ceremony,bmxing,tennis and football and the 100m final-just asked for the 20 quid tickets for everything-obv the ceremony and 100m final is a one in a million shot,but I reckon I will get the football at hampden and 50/50 for the bmx and tennis. discovered today that thomas cook travel are the "official olympic break" sellers and they have been guaranteed tickets to sell packages which are all around 90-110 quid for a guaranteed ticket and a hotel for athletics/boxing/swimming/gymnastics and a few others-wonder how many they have? about £450 if I get everything btw

    Sounds interesting Barky pretty sure that loads of people will regret applying for half of the ones they have. May be a lot available when they do have a re-sale

    Went for Track Cycling and of course Athletics, will be £390 if we get them, but its a only once in a lifetime thing, so worth it

    Havent ordered any.

    I have no interest in going to a championship sides football stadium!

    I am applied but when I log it it says "You have not applied for any tickets".

    So what happen to my application for the tickets>?

    Does this mean I have not got any tickets, because I applied for fours events.

    2 x Football, 1 x Hockey and 1 x Badmintion.

    Crap. If someone could help me>?

    What is going on>?

    I'll be stung for a fortune if I get all mine but I'm hoping I get some of them - swimming, athletics, cycling and rowing.
    Once in a lifetime chance at going to the Olympics here.

    So has my application gone I applied last week and never got a confirmation email.

    Because I logged it earlier this week and everything was fine.

    Did I need to press a confirm button or something?

    This sucks hard, I thought everything was fine, so never check my account yestarday.

    Now I dont even get to go. Even worse my brother dont get to go. This sucks hard.

    Mighty mugger: I think you should have received a confirmation e-mail. I did, within 1 minute.
    Why don't you contact them and ask why you haven't got one?
    You won't know if you have been allocated tickets until later in the year, if your application has been confirmed.

    What did anyone get?.. I've got relay finals night in athletics (from estonia!) and one £30 ticket (1% of a £3k application to the main uk site) - probably football semi...

    I got none

    I would say keep looking out for options, you never know:

    Also found out I got tickets to two more athletics finals nights (so I am now going to three in total) and to tennis bronze medal matches from the Denmark site (sportsworld). I have so many tickets now!.. If the uk site was anything like as easy as the other European sites I think the Olympics would have a lot more happy customers!..
