With only 500 days to go before the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, the United States' authorized Olympic ticket seller CoSport has kicked off ticket sales. Well, sort of. From today through April 22, sports fans can put in ticket requests for the more than 58,000 tickets to 650 "sporting sessions" initially available. In this first phase, you'll have the same chance at scoring tickets whether you apply in the next five minutes or wait until April 21. After the deadline, the company will begin fulfilling ticket requests. According to CoSport, more than 56 percent of the tickets available now are priced under $150.
More tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis starting in June. And bundled hotel-and-ticket packages, which were pretty popular during the Vancouver Olympics, will go on sale later this month.
