LOCOG Reports Thousands Of Olympic Tickets To High-Demand Events Went Unsold
Published November 14, 2012
COE PRESSED: In London, Owen Gibson reported that former LOCOG Chair Sebastian Coe "is set to be warned by London Assembly members that unless he provides a full breakdown of Olympic ticket sales, the public could be left with the impression that those available were skewed toward less popular sports and sessions." The London Assembly will press Coe "for more transparency on its ticketing policy." However, despite LOCOG providing a sport-by-sport breakdown of the percentage of tickets sold to the U.K. public for each Olympic and Paralympic sport, "there is concern among assembly members that the committee has failed to give a full session-by-session breakdown of ticket sales at each price point" (GUARDIAN, 11/13).
