Olympic Ticket Debit Deadline

Allegedly, according to Locog, today is the deadline day (a movable feast if ever ther was one!) for when the "vast majority" of successful Olympic ticket applicants will have their accounts debited.

The Telegraph reports that most applicants appear to have received between 10%-20% of what they applied for.

However, the successful applicants (despite being charged now) will not be told until next month what they have got.

The "lottery nature" of the allocation process has effectively forced fans to bid for more than they actually want, in order to increase their chances of being successful. All very well if you have the funds to gamble in this manner, not so easy for those fans who are less well off.

Was it not Locog who claimed that they wanted the ticket purchasing process to be fair?
