Olympic organizers putting up nearly 1 million more tickets on sale for London Games
LONDON (AP) ' Olympic organizers are making nearly 1 million more tickets available in the latest round of sales for the London Games.
The organizing committee says the tickets will go on sale online starting at 6 a.m. EDT on Friday.
The tickets will be available on first-come, first-served basis to the nearly 1 million people who applied in previous rounds but came up empty handed.
Included are tickets for the opening and closing ceremonies, and the 100-meter final.
First priority will be given to the 20,000 people who were unsuccessful in the initial ballot and missed out again in a second sale. Those customers will be given 31 hours of exclusive access.
After that, the 1 million people who applied in the initial ballot but were unsuccessful will have an exclusive five-day window.
