You’ve signed up and set a reminder for tickets going on sale on 15 March and you’ve read the warnings from Diamond Geezer about just how that ballot’s going to work. Now you can sharpen your pencil and get out your calculator because the Olympic competition schedule and ticket prices for events have been released.
The premium crowd puller at premium price is the 100m men’s final day on 5 August. We hope we’ll catch Rebecca Addlington defending her 400m and 800m freestyle titles on 29 July and 3 August respectively. And as the BBC point out, the middle weekend will be “unmissable with British trio Jessica Ennis, Christine Ohuruogu and Paula Radcliffe set to be going for gold.”
You can download the entire schedule as a PDF with sporting events listed alphabetically.
