“With less than 100 days to go before the Paralympics, I can’t remember a more exciting week on the road to London 2012.”
The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) has revealed the design for the London 2012 Paralympic tickets, designed by Futurebrand, part of McCann Worldgroup.
Each ticket features a sport pictogram and the colour scheme reflects that of each venue to help spectators reach their destination. They will be printed with a hologram, a barcode and name of the booker as well as several other security features to reduce counterfeiting. This will ensure every ticket can be traced to the person who purchased it.
With Paralympic Games tickets on sale since 21 May, LOCOG has also reiterated the importance of purchasing only from authorised sources. The majority of tickets will be sold on www.tickets.london2012.com and there is also a full list of authorised ticket resellers available on the website, the International Paralympic Committee’s (IPC) official ticket reseller.
LOCOG also has a URL checker on this website which will confirm whether any website claiming to sell London 2012 tickets is genuine or not.
“With less than 100 days to go before the Paralympics, I can’t remember a more exciting week on the road to London 2012,” said LOCOG CEO Paul Deighton.
“It is important now that people keep their tickets in a safe place ready for Games time and also to be wary of websites and organisations claiming to have Games tickets to sell. In many cases, they simply do not have them to sell and there is a real danger people will end up being out of pocket and missing out on seeing the Games. If in doubt, check our website and be 100% certain you are buying from an authorised source.”
