Olympics ticket resale site to re-open
Monday, January 16, 2012
LONDON (AP) -- London Olympics organizers are re-opening a ticket resale website for the Summer Games so that people who want to sell unwanted tickets can do so.
But people who want to buy the tickets will have to wait until a separate sale in April.
The resale effort that resumes Tuesday comes after organizers suffered a computer meltdown when they tried to put up tickets for resale earlier this month. London has suffered several computer glitches because demand for the July 27-Aug. 12 event has outstripped supply.
Ticket holders can offer their tickets for resale at face value until Feb. 3.
