Blog2010 ≫ Olympics ticket prices announced, not on sale yet

Full details here1, 90% of tickets will be at ONE HUNDRED POUNDS or less, bargain. I guess this monster needs paying for somehow. I bet the profits go to private companies not back to the tax payer who is funding it all.

Some tickets for all events (including the opening ceremony, which is on my 40th birthday) available for 20.12, availability of these are likely to be nigh-imaginary. There will also be "official touting", tickets bundled with accomodation etc so as to bump up prices:
