LOCOG Says 80% Of Olympics Tickets Have Been Sold
Published June 28, 2012
TICKETS IN FRANCE: In Paris, Olivia Derreumaux reported that France still has Olympic tickets available. About 10,000 tickets "will be put on sale until the start" of the Games. French ticket agency EVENTEAM President Igor Juzon said 100 to 200 tickets will be put on sale every day in an attempt to "satisfy the demand until the start, maybe even during the competition." The prices for the tickets range from €26 ($32) to €2,200 ($2,700). After England, France received the most tickets from LOCOG with 100,000 of the 9 million that were commercialized. That is because of the "geographic proximity with England, the population in the country and the number of French athletes that received medals" at the 2008 Beijing Games. Of the €485M ($605M) from ticket revenue that LOCOG expects, €10M ($12.5M) "should come from the French market" (LEFIGARO, 6/27).
