The following is a collection of information about Olympic ticket sales designed for use by UK, EU, EEA and Swiss residents looking for tickets to the London 2012 Olympic games. This has been compiled through a combination of sources (please see the credits). Let me know at @nmdouglas if you find it helpful. Standard warnings apply - it may be incomplete or inaccurate (although I've tried to make it clear the places in which I am unsure). I used the following methodology.
This is intended to be a current status list and not a breaking news list. For breaking news:
If you have any updates send them to me at @nmdouglas - once you've helped yourself and your friends to tickets!
use the website checker at London 2012 before buying tickets from anyone - even sites on the list below.
NOTE : I don't update this overly frequently nowadays. Our new site is at www.2012tweeps.com - go and check it out. For updates - your best bet is to tweet me or better to ask a question using the #2012tweeps hashtag

If you want tickets and are prepared to buy a package there are a huge number of options (and not just with the people listed above). UK residents can also buy tours from any of the EEA/EU resellers.
The only one I have considered buying is IBTravel. They have already sold to UK residents. They will deduct 8000CZK from prices if you are not flying.
In general - the various czech package offers seem to be best SLAN also seem reasonable although I've seen no evidence of EEA sales.
