Roll Up Roll Up - 2012 Olympics tickets

It's hanging in the balance. Will we cock it up? Will it be a success? Will Boris cycle in with Beckham on his back? Will the park, post-games, become a refugee camp? Will the cylopsian mascots, Wenlock and Mandeville, become even bigger laughing stocks than they already are? Whatever happens before, during or after 2012's London Olympics, we're going to want to witness it first hand, and tickets are already in demand.

On sale from March 2011, over 8 million tickets will be available with a range of prices, in a bid to make the games as accessible as possible. With 90% of tickets priced at £100 or below and 2.5 million of those £20 or under, London and the other Olympic venues will, with luck, put the half-empty arenas of Delhi’s commonwealth games to shame.

London 2012 Chairman Sebastian Coe said, “We have three clear principles for our ticketing strategy – tickets need to be affordable and accessible to as many people as possible, tickets are an important revenue stream for us to fund the Games and our ticketing plans have the clear aim of filling our venues to the rafters”.

Encouragingly London will have more tickets available for disabled athletics fans than any previous Olympics in history, with tickets prices including the cost for one companion seat.

Don’t be fooled though, if you want that prime seat to see Mr Usian Bolt casually hit warp-speed after a bellyful of chicken nuggets, tickets will be available at around the £725 mark.
