Beijing Olympic Ticketing System Collapses

Massive demand has caused Beijing’s Olympic ticketing system to collapse.

The second round of tickets has gone on sale for the Beijing Olympic Games, but with more than 200,000 applications per second, the response has been more than the system could handle.

The server for the internet ticketing site overloaded while telephone lines were jammed and as a result, just 9,000 of the 1.8 million tickets available were sold on the first day

The Beijing Organising Committee has called for buyers to be patient.

China will eventually sell seven million tickets to the Olympics, with 75 per cent of sales available to local residents.
