Olympics tickets guide

For the first round of ticket sales ballet system was adopted by the London 2012 organizing committee. It left frustrations among the people since one third of the applicants were not offered with tickets. Second round of ticket sales was started on last Friday but that ended up due to some technical problem. But people can still buy the tickets for Paralympics and soccer via london2012 official website.
Tickets prices are normally rated from £20 ($32, €23) to £725. For opening and closing Ceremony, tickets are in the range from £2,012 to £20.12.Your ticket purchase will include VAT as well.
LOCOG has announced temporary shut down for the London 2012 tickets reselling Process

Although the owners of tickets can resale their tickets until May 3, 2012 due to the technical problems LOCOG has cancelled the resale of limited number of tickets.
Last Friday ticket owners of London 2012 games have sold the tickets in the face by submitting the resale request forms in London2012 website. Due the machine problems the committee has suspended the further requests made to resale their tickets. Spokesmen at LOCOG said this problem will soon be rectified and the requests will be resumed soon after the problem is fixed.

Anyhow you can still get tickets for Paralympics and soccer league. In the First round of ticket sales ended at April, 6.6 million tickets were made available. But only one third of the applicants were able to reserve their tickets both the ballot system.
Now another round of Ticket sales is ended up with these technical problems within the 2 hours of its launch.

The ticket resale process was scheduled to extend up to Feb 6. Totally 1.3 million football tickets & 500,000 Paralympic tickets are expected to come on sale. Although the second round of ticketing reselling process was shut down due to the flawed system, this process will reopen again in April  and will continue up to the closing ceremony.

London 2012 Organizing Committee Allows Ticket reselling of London Olympics 2012
If you already bought the tickets for London 2012 then you can start to submit for resale.

This announcement has been made by the London 2012 Organizing Committee. The facility is enabled in the London 2012 official website. But there is dead line is determined for those who want to resale their tickets. So you can utilize this opportunity until May 3, 2012. This window period will not be extended anymore.
The reason is London 2012 organizing committee has kept some tickets for selling in the later of May 2012.The total number of tickets to be available for sale in this year is estimated to one million. But out of this one million, nearly ten thousand tickets will go unavailable just because of the ticketing glitch. 

The London 2012 Organizing Committee and its ticketing agent Ticketmaster have confirmed approximately 10000 tickets are oversold because of human errors made in the ticket reservation process.
However it is a usual one that happens every year in the Olympic ticketing process. This year LOCOC have introduced the ballot ticketing system. In this system potential buyers of tickets need to give in an application that contains details about the tickets they are going to buy. 

These applications will typically ask the applicants to enter all the events they want to see in preference. In this process once this application is submitted it doesn’t mean that the tickets are allocated. Instead only the Applicants those who win the ballot will be provided with the London 2012 tickets.
Among the public this ballot ticketing system has brought the dissatisfaction. The official website of London Olympic 2012 was not designed to bear the heavy traffic at the time of applications had made available to reserve.
