    Olympic Ticket Allocation - What did you get?

    The emails have gone out today confirming what you've actually got for that sum of money deducted from your Visa card.

    Mr gee applied for loads of tickets for us and got only one set of 4... but it's the Athletics 200m final which we are delighted with.

    I applied for many fewer and different tickets for us and, although it appeared I had been unsuccessful at first, there was a late payment on my card and I've got us tickets for the Football final, Mens C1 canoe slalom (Would have preferred the K1 as a former slalomist, but this'll do) and Gymnastics.

    Overall, we're very pleased.

    I know so many were disappointed, but has anybody else got tickets for events?

    Waiting for my friend to confirm......we went for womans volley ball obviously to check out the tactics and skill level. I think we also went for a swimming event and football semi-final.

    We shall see!

    I only applied for a couple of events that I particularly wanted to see, and got neither of them. More than a little disappointed. I guess that's what I get for being careful and not trying to grab as many tickets as I could.

    Yep we did the same and got bugger all. I know Thomas Cook are doing package deals, might be worth seeing what they have on offer.

    Didn't apply for tickets, as I had applied (and since been interviewed) to be a London 2012 Games Maker Volunteer.

    Strangely Thomas Cook were advertising the package deals for the two events I went for before the ticket results were announced. My new plan is to give up on the whole thing in disgust and take a trip to Carnivale in Venice instead.

    I had confirmation back in March, and my local regional event was in April.

    I think the process is still taking place around the UK, so maybe they have not covered your regional area yet?

    The Olympic Website states:
    From January 2011 we will start inviting successful applicants to a selection event – this will be between February 2011 and early 2012.
    The events will be held in London, Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Coventry, Cardiff, Belfast, Weymouth and Plymouth.

    Don't seem to have got any. Probably should have applied.
