1m Olympic tickets go on sale
London - Olympic organisers are putting nearly 1 million more tickets on offer in the latest round of sales for the London Games.
The organising committee says the tickets will go on sale online starting on Friday.
The tickets will be available on first-come, first-served basis to the nearly 1 million people who applied in previous rounds but came up empty handed.
Included are tickets for the opening and closing ceremony and the 100m athletics final.
First priority will be given to the 20 000 people who were unsuccessful in the initial ballot and missed out again in a second sale. Those customers will be given 31 hours exclusive access.
After that, the 1 million people who applied in the initial ballot but were unsuccessful will then have an exclusive 5-day sales period.
