Time ticks on for Brits looking for tickets to London 2012As the clock strikes 7.30pm on Saturday 5th May, the countdown is on for those Brits still looking for a seat at the sporting spectacle of a lifetime, as this marks 2012 hours until the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Thomas Cook, the Official Short Breaks Provider to the Games, has availability for some of London 2012 best Games Breaks including the opportunity to see if Usain Bolt will defend his 100m title, Team GB take to the turf at Wembley and even the chance to experience the once in a lifetime Opening and Closing Ceremonies.
Consisting of ticket and hotel, their range of improved Games Breaks range in price and suit all sports fans and their budgets. With 2012 hours to go until the Games begin, Thomas Cook is the only place to guarantee your seat at the Games.
Stephen Vaughan, Managing Director of Thomas Cook London 2012 Partnership, said: “Demand for ticket packages has been strong, but there’s been a definite increase in interest this month, as it has started to sink in that the Games are coming to London in just 2012 hours. There’s still time to experience this once in a lifetime event and support Team GB, as Thomas Cook’s network of over 800 stores is the only place on the High Street that UK residents can guarantee a seat at the Games.”
JJ Jegede (pictured), GB Long Jump hopeful and Thomas Cook London 2012 brand ambassador, said: “As athletes, we try not to focus on the countdown, but as an athletics fan I’d be looking to secure my seat now to watch Team GB compete on home soil. There is nothing like the atmosphere of watching athletics live. It’s not to be missed.”
Thomas Cook revealed new Games Break combinations for one night, two event breaks that have proved popular with UK sports fans.
