London 2012 Resale Website Remains Offline

January 10, 2012

The London 2012 website for ticket resales which was suspended Friday is still offline Monday.

The site was suspended Friday afternoon due to problems arising after tens of thousands of people went online to purchase unwanted tickets for the London Games.

A spokesman for London 2012 said, “we asked Ticketmaster to suspend the site and address several issues”. He said one of the main problems appeared to be a delay in updating the site once tickets had been sold.

The spokesman added, “we are working to get the site up and running as soon as possible”.

Meanwhile a spokesman for Ticketmaster said he didn’t have the full details as to why the site was taken offline.

The ticket resale site was to be available until February 3, but it’s not clear if the deadline will be extended following the site’s suspension Friday.
