Olympic ticket sales are conducted in three phases, with multiple purchasing methods available in each phase.

Phase 1 starts in April 2007, and ends on June 30th, 2007. This phase is only for the submission of ticket applications.

Completed paper forms can be submitted at any participating Bank of China Olympic ticket outlet or at the following mailing address: Beijing 100007 Mailbox, Sub-box No. 98, Beijing, Postal code 100007.

Phase 2 starts in October 2007, and ends in December 2007. This phase offers three ways of purchasing tickets:

Phase 3 starts in April 2008 and extends through the closing of the Olympic Games. During this phase, in addition to the three purchasing methods in Phase 2, you may also make purchases at the particular venue box offices. Tickets purchased in Phase 3 will be printed out in real time.
