Availability and prices of tickets are driven by market demand; they are not determined by OlympicTickets2020.com. All the tickets are listed and priced by approved ticket specialists. Each ticket specialist competes with others to provide you with the largest selection of tickets at the best price. Face value refers to the price printed on the 'face' of the ticket or the original purchase price in the primary market. The face value of a ticket can differ from the selling price, because the tickets listed on OlympicTickets2020.com are sold at 'market value'. If the event is in high demand, the selling price is generally much higher than the face value on the ticket and vice versa.

How are tickets delivered?
All tickets are sent using secure shipment methods, depending on your location.

Please provide a secure address to ensure someone is available to sign for the envelope. If you are staying in a hotel you authorise anyone at the hotel to accept the delivery on your behalf so you may want to advise them you will be expecting a delivery. If no one is available to sign for the delivery, your postman/courier will leave a 'while you were out card' and you will be able to collect your envelope from your local Sorting Office (The address can be found on the back of the card).
