As of June 12, the third phase of ticket sales ended with more than 6 million tickets sold, said Zhuyan, head of the Beijing Olympics Ticketing Center. More than one million tickets will be on sale in the fourth phase, which is expected to start in late July. The fourth-phase of tickets sales will mainly be for Olympic sponsors, all National Olympic Committees (NOCs) and on-site audiences.

Most remaining tickets are for soccer competitions in the four co-host cities -- Tianjin, Shanghai, Qinhuangdao and Shenyang; and among others, include 20,000 tickets for special venues in Beijing such as the Bird's Nest. All these tickets will go on sale at the competition venues.

Until now the Beijing Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games (BOCOG) has already sold approximately two million tickets to Olympic sponsors and several National Olympic committees (NOCs), among which dozens of NOCs have ordered Olympic tickets for the first time.
