Sign-up for Olympic tickets begins today, so if you want to be there for London 2012 make sure you register.

Here’s how to apply for a seat at the London Olympics 2012.

  • Register for tickets online between March 15 and April 26 at It makes no difference whether you sign-up today or on April 26, just make sure you get that application in.
  • Online payment is exclusively by Visa debit card, credit card or pre-paid card.
  • You can also register for a London 2012 ticket via a paper application form which is available in Lloyds TSB and pay by cheque or postal order as well as Visa.
  • You can register for up to 20 Olympic sessions per application. Once an application is processed, you can’t change your orders, and must have the funds available to pay for the tickets.
  • Due to high demand for certain events, like the men’s 100 metres final, you may not get all the tickets you apply for. Rather than working on a first come, first served basis, tickets will be allocated at in a random draw from all of the applications.
  • It’s worth applying for the popular Olympic events (if you can afford it) but you’ll have more chance of getting a ticket for something less high-profile. Hedge your bets.
  • London 2012 Olympic tickets will range from £20 for bargain events (like the first-round athletic heats) to £725 for the 100m final and other mega-popular sessions.
