The vast majority of payments will be taken by next week (31 May), with the entire process completed by 10 June.
We will contact you before 24 June to let you know if you have been successful and, if so, which tickets you have been allocated.
Second chance sales
There will be another chance to apply for tickets – we are calling this ‘second chance sales’.
If you have not been allocated any tickets in the initial process, you will have the first chance to apply for tickets. This will be followed by a further chance for those who were allocated some or all of their ticket requests.
Second chance sales will include tickets for lots of great sport including Basketball, Beach Volleyball, Boxing, Canoe Sprint, Cycling (Women’s Mountain Bike), Football, Handball, Hockey, Taekwondo, Volleyball, Weightlifting and Wrestling. So there are plenty of other chances to be part of the greatest show on earth.
Visa payments will only be taken for successful applications. If your card has been lost or stolen or there are any issues with collection of payment, we will contact you by 10 June 2011 to arrange an alternative Visa payment.
Cheque and postal order payments
If you are allocated any or all of the tickets you applied for and paid by cheque or postal orders, the full amount of your application will be banked. Applicants due refunds of more than £1,000 will receive their payment via bank transfer by 10 June 2011. Refunds due for all other amounts will be processed within five working days of funds clearing.
If you are not allocated any tickets your cheque will be securely destroyed. If you paid by postal order, the full payment will be deposited and you will receive a letter explaining the refund collection process.
