With the London Olympics fast approaching, fans should be pleased to know that tickets are still available for some sessions through certain official ticket resellers.
The marcus evans THG Sports Tours (“THG”) Company has confirmed the availability of tickets for various athletics, badminton, basketball, beach volleyball, boxing, equestrian eventing, football, judo, shooting, table tennis, tennis, volleyball and weightlifting sessions, excluding finals.
“For Ireland, the best medal prospect will be in boxing. It is our biggest medal success sport and we have a great young team coming up for London,” Patrick Hickey, the President of the Olympic Council of Ireland recently told The Irish World.
Boxing has been a part of the Olympics since the 1904 Summer Games, and the 2012 Games will include women’s boxing for the first time. The football and weightlifting sessions are also major features of the Olympics programme, and are drawing a lot of interest from the public.
Tickets are only available from the authorised ticket resellers appointed by The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games, and are on a first come first serve basis. THG also has a limited number of accommodation and hospitality packages still available.
THG Sports, which provides sports ticketing services and corporate hospitality programmes at sporting events around the world, is the authorised ticket reseller for Ireland, Greece and Malta, but according to the law, tickets are open to all European Union Residents. THG is also organising the Irish House in London, open to all those who would like to follow the Games with company, exclusive entertainment and good food.
