CoSport, the authorized ticket reseller and official hospitality package provider of the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC), announced today that ticket sales will begin on March 15 - the 500 day countdown to the Opening Ceremony - and pre-registration is currently open for U.S. residents including those who want to attend equestrian events.

The first phase of ticket sales will be handled exclusively through an online request process, which begins March 15 and runs through April 22, 2011, at 12 midnight ET. During this request phase, all applicants will have an equal chance of being awarded their requested tickets. CoSport will begin to fulfill ticket requests from available inventory once this initial request phase has concluded. In the case that ticket requests exceed available inventory for any session, a lottery process will be conducted by CoSport at the end of April.

For the initial ticket launch, more than 58,000 tickets will be available for purchase to more than 650 sporting sessions. More than 56 percent of tickets offered during this initial request phase will be priced under $150.

CoSport currently plans to commence a second phase of sales in June 2011, which will be first-come, first-served for any tickets unsold during the first phase of sales, and will also include any additional tickets that CoSport acquires from the London Organizing Committee in the future
