Resale Platform on the London 2012 Ticketing Website to Reopen's
LOCOG confirms that the resale platform on the London 2012 ticketing website will re-open to ticketholders who want to sell their tickets from 3pm today (17/01/2012).
Ticket holders who wish to offer their tickets for resale can do so for a 2 week period until 6pm on 3rd February.
All tickets offered for resale through www.tickets.london2012.com during this period will be purchased directly by LOCOG at face value.
These tickets will then be made available to the public from April, and LOCOG will release further information on the purchase process in due course.
LOCOG Commercial Director Chris Townsend commented:
‘We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by the suspension of our ticketing resale platform. We made a commitment to our customers to give them a safe, secure and legal way of selling Olympic and Paralympic tickets which they are no longer able to use. We are delivering on that commitment, and will buy any tickets that customers are no longer able to use at face value until 3rd February.
'Every ticket we purchase from the public will be offered back to the public from April. We believe this system – purchasing the tickets back from customers now, and offering them again from April, will result in a better customer experience for everyone’.
