Remaining tickets for football matches at the London 2012 Olympics go on sale at 11am on Tuesday 29 November 2011

Remaining tickets for football matches at the London 2012 Olympics go on sale at 11am on Tuesday 29 November 2011 on a first-come, first-served basis.

The London Organising Committee (Locog) has now confirmed that the Team GB men’s and women’s teams will play their group matches at:

  • Wembley Stadium, London
  • Old Trafford, Manchester
  • The Millennium Stadium, Cardiff

How can I buy tickets?

Remaining tickets will go on sale on a first come, first served basis at 11am on Tuesday 29 November 2011 at www.tickets.london2012.com.

You can also call the Olympics Ticketing team on 0844 847 2012. While this number costs 5p a minute from a BT landline, calls from mobiles are likely to be very expensive, so you may prefer to book online instead.

Which? principal researcher Martyn Saville commented: ‘Many consumers prefer to deal with companies by phone, rather than online. The lack of a geographical landline number to call is frustrating, particularly if you’re calling from a mobile.

‘There is an 0207 phone number listed on the the London 2012 website, aimed at overseas callers but which could be used by UK consumers to avoid the 0844 number. However, this no longer works and callers are advised to call the potentially expensive 0844 number instead.’

How can I pay for tickets?

Only Visa-branded debit, credit and prepaid cards can be used to purchase tickets.

Full price tickets will start at £20. There will also be a number of ‘Pay your age’ tickets for young people aged 16 and under, and £16 tickets for seniors aged 60 and over. These deals are not available for semi-final and medal matches.

  • Update: Remaining tickets for the London 2012 Paralympic Games go back on sale at 1pm on Friday 2 December 2011.

Can I sell on unwanted Olympics tickets?

If you’ve already bought tickets but can no longer attend, you will have to go though an official London 2012 selling exchange. However, this service will not launch until 2012 and further details are not yet available. Don’t try to sell independently of this site, as you could face a £20,000 fine.
