London 2012 announces Olympic Games ticket prices

London 2012 has recently announced the ticket pricing for the Games.  Please see the link below to the media release for further information.

Please particularly note the reference to the 'London 2012 Ticketshare' scheme which will see many thousands of school children receiving tickets for the Games.  A levy on the price of prestige hospitality packages will allow 100,000 tickets to be donated to schools around the UK via the London 2012 'Get Set' education network and the Olympic and Paralympic style schools sports competition.  Further details of this scheme and how schools can apply will be announced in 2011.  Meanwhile schools are urged to join the London 2012 'Get Set' education programme to be in the best position to take advantage of the scheme.

It is increasingly apparent that those involved in London 2012 programmes such as Inspire and Get Set will have an important role in linking to major London 2012 initiatives such as Ticketing and the Torch Relay.  Please consider the opportunities to link into and raise the profile of these programmes going forwards.

Many thanks

Rob Young, Northwest Co-ordinator for the 2012 Games
