Despite my issues with second chance sales, I am going to the Olympics! I had an email this morning confirming that I have got all the tickets I applied for. Hopefully my Olympics-buddy Emma gets hers too.
I am relieved because after the first round of sales and hearing how many of the remaining tickets were for football, I wasn’t holding out much hope. I didn’t know whether first-come-first-served worked on the basis of when you’d selected your tickets and they were in your basket or when you order was actually processed, as there was a gap of about 25 minutes between the two due to the problems with the ticketing website.
I’ve got tickets for two handball events and one basketball, all quarter finals or better. I’m chuffed with that. I would have liked cycling, swimming and athletics as well as the opening ceremony, all of which I applied for in the first round, but that was always unlikely and I’m pleased with what I’ve got.
