Where to find those last-minute tickets for must-see sports
IRELAND'S allocation of Olympic tickets has sold out, but fans can still get last-minute returns through the official Olympics website www.london2012.com.
The returns are available at face value, with what's on offer changing rapidly as the unwanted tickets returned by buyers are snapped up quickly.
Although some high-profile events such as athletics, show jumping, tennis and swimming are fully sold out, tickets were still available yesterday for many contests. As well as boxing events featuring stars such as Katie Taylor, tickets were also available for a number of sports including gymnastics, volleyball, rowing and football. Football tickets in particular are in plentiful supply with prices starting from £20. Tickets for tonight's opening extravaganza start at £1,600.
Because it is too late to have the tickets posted out, buyers can purchase online using their Visa card and collect the tickets from any London 2012 box office.
