Don’t miss your chance to support Team GB at Rio 2016

  • Those looking to support Team GB in Rio have another chance to buy tickets for the 2016 Olympic Games (15-21 August).

    The second individual ticket request phase opened yesterday (Wednesday 3 June) and will close at 2pm on Wednesday (10 June).

    Members of the public can register their interest for tickets online during this time.

    “The second ticket request phase has only limited tickets,” a British Equestrian Federation (BEF) spokesman told H&H.

    “As far as we are aware this is the final opportunity fans will have to request tickets for the Olympic Games.”

    This follows an initial individual ticket request stage which closed on 4 May.

    A live sale of tickets had been planned to begin on 19 May but was halted by a technical problem.

    “Ahead of the sale going live in May there was an unforeseen technical issue which prohibited this from happening,” added the BEF spokesman.

    To register your interest in purchasing tickets visit the CoSport website — the authorised ticket reseller for the Games in Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

    By 15 June 2015, applicants will receive confirmation of the requested tickets that will be offered for purchase.

    Payment for confirmed tickets that are wanted must be received by no later than 2pm on 19 June 2015.

    Hotel and ticket packages are on offer in addition to individual tickets. These packages include three- or four-star accommodation, daily breakfast and support from the CoSport team and local hosts.

    “Our hotel and ticket packages simplify attending Rio 2016 so our guests can focus on enjoying this once-in-a-lifetime experience,” said Robert F. Long, president of CoSport.

    “There will be plenty of opportunities to choose from once sales open, but the best packages will surely go fast.”
