Following on from the exciting news that the British Athletics London Grand Prix is set to be staged at the Olympic Stadium in July, those who have already bought tickets for Crystal Palace need to be aware of the following information:
Those holding tickets for the event originally planned for Crystal Palace will begin receiving a refund from Ticketmaster shortly. This is because it is not possible to transfer the tickets that have been already purchased for Crystal Palace across to the new venue.
However, those ticketholders will receive the first opportunity to purchase seats at the Olympic Stadium when the tickets go on sale, with a special priority booking period taking place ahead of pre-sale and general sale. To say thank you for your ongoing support, you will be able to purchase equivalent standard tickets at the same price you paid for your Crystal Palace seats.
