Re: The Olympic Schedule

The admission charge are at a level which you would have thought there was prize money for the competitors.

Re: The Olympic Schedule

Something odd:- First event takes place on the 25th July yet the opening ceremony is on the 27th July. Roll eyes

Re: The Olympic Schedule

It's the same at every Olympics, and it's a sport that should not be in the games. Do you see the best of this sport at the Olympics?

Re: The Olympic Schedule

@ journeys - On BBC news they did say that some of the ladies football matches took place before the Olympics officially opened.
It's all so different from the 1948 Olympics - I recall cycling up to Wembley, from Greenford, to watch training  Cool

Tickets start at £20 as can be seen here:
£20 tickets
Like any event cost goes up as the event moves forward.  I think the top price for some events is around £400.  I guess these will be corporate buyers.

Re: The Olympic Schedule

I suppose they have to try and limit the overall Games losses to a manageable size otherwise the banks will get upset. Tongue

Who the hell is going to pay £40 to watch a women's football match between two country's you probably never knew had women's footballs teams at 5pm on summers Monday evening in Coventry?  I mean who is going to dump work for that?
They need to be giving the tickets away, not charging.

Re: The Olympic Schedule

Essex County Council has put a lot of work into the site.  It was originally planned to be held in Brentwood but had to be moved.
I have collegues who are involved in the legacy aspect of the site and had a briefing on this only last night.
