    Quarter 3 on the 4th of August. Does anyone know when tickets are available for this game? Olympic site not giving any out yet!

  2. Donna Petch

    Hi Kevin, I have my tickets, got them from the Olympic site. Have you tried this link?

    1. Kevin Whitney

      Yes Donna, I am on the Olympic site and I can get tickets for the Wednesday 26th game but not for the 4th which is a Saturday. It lets me request the tickets but then no further. It’s not saying they are unavailable and I live in Manchester so no chance of Popping to the ground.

    2. Kevin Whitney

      Got my ticket tonight after much trying and frustration over many days! Annoying thing was is on confirmation of purchase it informed me that tickets for any event can only be purchased from the Olympic site, EXCEPT FOR FOOTBALL. Still chuffed though x.

        Great news! Enjoy the game, Donna 🙂
