Ticket for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing are currently available.  The USOC has an exclusive sponsorship agreement with JetSet/CoSport as the official provider of Games tickets and Olympic hospitality packages in the United States.  Under this agreement, JetSet/CoSport is the only authorized seller of Olympic tickets in this country.  It is also the only company authorized to use Olympic trademarks and imagery in the United States to promote and sell hospitality and travel packages for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. 

We strongly encourage consumers to purchase your Olympic Games tickets through JetSet/CoSport in order to ensure those tickets are valid.  We are aware of scam websites offering to sell Olympic tickets when they do not actually have access to any tickets.  They will either provide counterfeit tickets that will not permit entry into Olympic venues or will just take your money and not send anything in return.  Consumers should be wary of unauthorized websites selling Olympic tickets because they may turn out to be fraudulent. 

Additionally, under the ticket license agreement, Olympic tickets are not supposed to be resold through commercial ticket brokers.  The Olympic Games organizing committee reserves the right to cancel Olympic event tickets that have been obtained through improper channels.  Therefore, the only way to ensure that your Olympic tickets are valid is to purchase them through the USOC's official only Olympic ticket distributor, JetSet/CoSport.  Tickets bought through alternative sources might not be accepted for entry to Olympic Game events.
