    Hi Everyone,

    Based on a longer FT thread, I found following @2012TicketAlert on twitter was the most useful to locate tickets!!

    :D

    Other than the tickets I got during the second of the first two lotteries here in the UK, getting tickets has proven frustrating to far too many!! My niece, a water polo player, will probably hate me for a long time...but she'll get the t-shirt...;)

    I'm sure she will be happy with the t-shirt. Regarding the provisions and distributions of tickets, that's a shame, I would have seen that fans like yourself, get a good shot for tickets and that they're available and made available in a fashion which brings the spectators closer to their events they wish / or wished to attend. Having read that many tickets were going to sponsors of the games and not taken up by them, leaving many seats empty / sometimes in their hundreds / at events, that's not something I would wish to see at the Olympics which shall people bring together and let them celebrate the success of such an event.

    Thus far... volleyball was boring, but GBR-Brazil women's football last night at Wembley was great!

    Next week is water polo on Monday and the women's football gold medal match at Wembley on Thursday!

    :)

    Excellent to hear, beside the Volleyball of course. Water polo is nice, full of action, glad you have tickets. Football, often women's football is way too often overlooked, but they play strong and in many instances so far I remember it is much more interesting than watching usual male soccer. GBR won, this was upsetting for the Brazil team, but of course fantastic for the host nation, a real surprise actually. Enjoy the gold medal match / final next Thursday. Glad you made it.:)
