The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games also conformed that Paralympic Games will go on sale on Friday, September 9.

The process for Olympic Games tickets will open for six weeks, enabling people to consider their options before making their final choices and submitting their application. Applications will close on April 26 and all oversubscribed sessions will be allocated via a ballot process.

Applications can be made at any point during the six week application period – it is not a first come, first served process.

LOCOG will announce full details of the purchasing process and the finalised schedule for all 650 sport sessions next month.

The two million people who have already signed up to the London 2012 ticketing database will receive all the information about how to apply and those who have registered will be able to use their existing log-in details to access the application process.

Further details of the application process for Paralympic tickets will be announced later this year, with prices announced in May.
