Fears Olympic Tickets Will Not Be Cheap

Progress on the Olympic Stadium, June 2010 by Andy Wilkes

A million may have signed up primed to grab Olympic tickets as they become available but as the detailed ticketing policy goes to the IOC this week there are fears that affordable tickets will be few and far between. Insiders say that the bid promise to make 2 million tickets available at under £50 may be reneged on as LOCOG scrambles to make £441 million on sales.

Seb Coe remains confident that Olympic tickets will sell (as long we all have a certain type of credit or debit card) and we're inclined to agree. If you've bought into London's Olympic dream and are counting down the days (751 to go!) then you're likely to be prepared to shell out to be part of it or suck up the "low cost... poor view" option to be part of it. Are we right?

For those who can't afford stadium seats or fancy VIP packages (or eschew plastic) remember some of the best spectating will be done for free lining the streets of London for road cycling, triathlon and the mighty Marathon.
