Tickets go on sale next month for the London 2012 Olympics and the ticketing information has been announced today.
I really wanted to try for tickets to the Opening Ceremony (I know it would be the longest of long shots to get chosen in the allocation, but worth a try). It starts at £20.12 but it will be practically impossible to get tickets in that price range. The most expensive is more than £2000!
I had a look at a few other events I’m interested in (athletics, swimming, cycling, tennis, badminton) but the problem is that you have to register your interest and if you are selected, you are committed to buying those tickets. So if you pick multiple events to increase your chance of getting tickets to something, and you end up getting chosen for lots of events by some fluke, you’re stuck with buying all those tickets.
