The 20,000 people who missed out on London 2012 tickets in the first two rounds of sales will be given priority when 900,000 more tickets go on sale at 11.0am on Friday.
They will have 31 hours’ exclusive access to the tickets before another one million people who were unsuccessful in the first ballot last year will then have a five-day sales period to try to buy tickets on a first-come, first-served basis. Each person will be limited to applying for one session and a maximum of four tickets.
For the first time, 70,000 Olympic Park tickets will be sold which will allow access to the Park to watch sport on the big screens but not to any actual events. Those tickets will be £10 or £5 for those aged 16 or under or 60 or over.
