An additional 60,000 tickets will be available across the whole IAAF World Championships, including most popular 100m finals sessions and opening night.

Additional tickets for all IAAF World Championships London 2017 sessions are to go on sale on Thursday June 15 at 10:00 to mark the 50 days to go milestone.

Following the initial ballot last August, across 14 sessions of athletics in the London Stadium, 13 had been over-subscribed in at least one seat category with over 1 million tickets applied for.

But an increase in capacity means a number of previously ‘at capacity’ sessions, including the best-selling 100m final nights, opening and closing nights and relay evenings, will be available at from Thursday, many with availability across all price points and seat categories.

It will also be the final opportunity for fans to purchase the £9.58 ‘Bolt ticket’ for children for all sessions for the Championships, which take place from August 4-13.

Niels de Vos, championship director, said: “We are delighted for fans of major sporting events in the UK that we’ve been granted increased capacity for the Stadium during the Summer of World Athletics.

“When we initially opened the ballot last summer 201,000 tickets were requested for the men’s 100m final night as well as a number of sessions being completely over-subscribed. This means we can aim to fill every seat in the Stadium for sold out sessions.

“We are so pleased that we can once again give more fans an opportunity to be part of the Championships and this announcement confirms our final availability for ticketing.”

The IAAF World Championships London 2017, and the World Para Athletics Championships London 2017, are together the biggest sporting event in the world in 2017. The biggest event to be staged at the London Stadium since the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games – it is the first time both Championships have been held in the same city in the same summer with over 3000 athletes from over 200 nations competing over 20 days of action.
