The ticket price structure for the 2012 Olympic Games was announced yesterday ahead of the tickets going on sale next March.
There will be 8.8 million tickets available – 800,000 more than previously announced – to see the 26 sports of the Games.
Ticket prices will be per session, the length of which will vary from sport to sport. There will be 649 separate ticketed sessions across the 26 sports during the Olympic Games and all tickets for events in and around London will include a Travelcard.
A novel idea for children is the ‘Pay Your Age’ scheme, which will operate for more than 200 Olympic Games sessions, and will see anyone who is 16 and under at the start of the Games pay their age. Visitors aged 60 and above will pay £16. A total of 1.3 million tickets will be available through this scheme.
Ticket prices for the opening ceremony at the Olympic Park – Olympic Stadium range from £20.12 to £2,012.
