One million Olympic tickets to go on sale Friday

LONDON (AP) - Olympic organizers are making nearly 1 million more tickets available in the latest round of sales for the London Games.

The organizing committee says the tickets will go on sale online starting at 6 a.m. EDT on Friday.

The tickets will be available on first-come, first-served basis to the nearly 1 million people who applied in previous rounds but came up empty handed.

Included are tickets for the opening and closing ceremonies, and the 100-meter final.

First priority will be given to the 20,000 people who were unsuccessful in the initial ballot and missed out again in a second sale. Those customers will be given 31 hours of exclusive access.

After that, the 1 million people who applied in the initial ballot but were unsuccessful will have an exclusive five-day window.
