Cheap London Olympics 2010 Ticket Idea Scrapped

Cheap London Olympics 2010 Ticket Idea Scrapped

The plans to sell a large number of cheap Olympics and Paralympics tickets for London 2012 are going to be scrapped as organisers are unable to raise adequate funds to cover the costs.

An estimated 441 million pounds is expected to be raised according to organisers. There are around 10 million tickets up for grabs for the Olympics and Paralympics games. The promise made to sell 8 million of these tickets cheaper (fifty pound or less) has now been shelved, as has the promise to sell 4.3 million tickets for 20 or less, sparking a lot of disappointment.

Organisers for the London 2012 games are due to produce a new ticket policy this week which is set to include the new pricing bands. The policy has been approved in advance by the International Olympic Committee.

It was reported that officials stated that 75 per cent of all tickets would be available for public purchase. The other twenty five percent of tickets will be taken up by committee members, sponsors and the hospitality and travel packages created.

The new plan is to price tickets for the most sought after events including the opening and closing ceremonies and swimming and athletics higher with just a few cheaper tickets available for poor quality seats. Paralympics events are expected to be much more affordable, which is good news for the many dedicated fans and supporters hoping to attend the games. Tickets for the Paralympics games are due to go on sale right at the start of next year.

Recently the IOC president visited sites in London and Stratford to take a look at the venues in order to check progress. The venues will be under much scrutiny and the standards will be high.

Some of the Paralympic activities involve the use of mobility aids which are subject to strict rules. Visit Prodo for the best SEO chester
