If you’re going to be living in London during 2012 then you’ll have to be prepared for one of the world’s biggest sporting events. The Olympic Games are being held in London and now is the time to start planning. Some people are moving right out of their London apartments and heading to the country for the duration of the games. You may want to consider renting out your London apartment for the duration of the Games, so you can make a little extra cash during the summer.
If you’re keen of seeing some of the Games, but don’t have the cash to splash on tickets to the events being held in London, you’ll be able to take advantage of the live sites that will offer massive television screenings of the important events. There will be sites in Hyde Park, Potters Fields, Victoria Park and Jubilee Gardens. If you want to get tickets, you’re a little late because the application for tickets has closed, but you may be able to pick up a ticket for certain events, during the further ticket sales that will be available during winter 2011. You will however only be able to pay with a Visa banking product.
If you want to get even more out of the whole experience of the games, you might want to consider becoming a VOLUNTEER during the games. You can get more information on the volunteering process by using the Games Maker website to apply for a position. The process of becoming a volunteer for the Olympic Games is quite strenuous. You’ll have to be available from the beginning of spring 2012 right through until the end of the Games. Your biggest time commitment will be during the Games themselves and you’ll have to commit to working a certain amount of shifts, depending on what team you have been placed into.
You’ll become a part of one of the world’s greatest events, and have the opportunity to be an ambassador for your city. You’re living herenow, and as the Olympic Games draw closer, you will find that you’re caught up in the frenzy, the excitement and the patriotic effort along with the rest of London.
