London 2012 ticket registration site goes live

BC readers interested in securing tickets for the London 2012 Olympic Games should register via the official website, which went live today.

Registering doesn't guarantee a ticket, but it does ensure you'll get the information when the sales start.

Thanks to Pete for the suggestion.

Note the equestrian events are in Greenwich.

Is that now absolutely fixed? I thought people were still contemplating the already international sites at Windsor etc. as being a cheaper option in view of the recession and massive overspends and cut back of sponsorship.

Headhunter said...

Bit late to be contemplating isn't it? They'll have to be getting on with hacking back the trees and levelling the undulating landscape soon...

Hacking back trees and levelling the undulating landscape?

Link please.

I dont think they will be doing much hacking or leveling.

Headhunter said...

Sorry, no link... Just teasing you all...

I thought they were still looking into (ie. ignoring) complaints from local groups in Greenwich about the environmental impact of building the course and stands?

Pete said...

I think the people from NOGOE were at Downing st last week handing their petition in. So I guess it could still be moved.

I can't really see it not being at Greenwich though.

Pete said...

In fact I see the planning board meeting is on the 23rd March so there is still plenty of shouting left to do.

Let's hope it doesn't get as hysterical as that going on in relation to Gordonbrock...

Brockley Nick said...

@Pete - it's already way, way more vitriolic than the Gordonbrock debate could ever be. NOGOE brook no argument.

Tamsin said...

Which is unfortunate as amid all the hysteria they do have some good points.

Particularly if there will be zero benefit to locals like us and a minimum chance of tickets even though we are on the doorstep.

Pete said...

You can blame the EU for that. Plus the fact we have to have straight bananas.

It's PC gone mad; and no doubt all symptomatic of broken britain.

Can someone please shoot the Greenwich nimbys?

The world's most prestigious sporting contest wants to hold an event in their park and they're whining.

Madness.

Conservation nuts really are the same everywhere aren't they.

Anyway I'm registering for tickets. I'll try my luck with the women's beach volleyball for purely sporting reasons.

I am beyond excited about this. I am praying for tickets to Excel watersports events and or Greenwich equistrian. I daren't think about athletics at the stadium. Can you imagine the men's 100m Olympic games in London.

Monkeyboy said...

I find myself in the somewhat alarming position of agreeing with Lou. Not sure you'll ever justify the cost but I do like a bit of running and jumping. Plus seeing lots of bemused tourists getting their wallets emptied by the local spivs (a word that should be used more)

And of course the ELL will make a breeze to get too. See you there Lou.

I didn't realise the ticket restrictions were EU imposed. I do wish we had shoved the whole shebang off onto the French - it would have been enlightening to see how they bent the rules to favour their friends.

But on a more postive note - anything to make, now we are getting nearer, of the idea finding a distant country based and training nearby that Brockley can formally link up with and support? That is a notion that I like. We could invite them to visit schools and do jumellage type things.

Pete said...

Well the athletics track over in Ladywell/Catford is down as one of the official training sites so we might get lucky and have Kazakhstan or some other exciting country to support.
