Olympic football: 1,000 more tickets for St James' Park quarter-final

Olympic organisers have put an extra 1,000 tickets on sale for the men's football quarter-final clash between Brazil and Honduras in Newcastle.

Saturday's game at St James' Park was sold out before the late announcement by games organiser Locog.

A spokeswoman said additional seats had become available after a big screen inside the ground was moved.

St James' was hit by ticketing delays last week, which resulted in some fans missing qualifying matches.

The tickets, priced at £20, are only available from the ground. The game kicks off at 17:00 BST on Saturday.
