2012 London Olympic Tickets Go On Sale

Gog & Magog opened the ticket sales for the 2012 London Olympics this morning, predictably this being the UK, the ticket system crashed, can’t fathom why it would…after all who wants to see an event the whole world participates in once every four years.

The ZION olympics (a theory too far stretched) are selling tickets in what has been described as the “most expensive tickets ever in sports”

“The committee is breaking with Olympic tradition because the market for corporate hospitality is enormous…that’s why we decided it was better to make it an official program, it’s better than corporate hospitality cropping up unofficially.”

Paul Deighton, chief executive officer of the London organizing committee and former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. banker.

The London organizing committee, or Logoc, is counting on selling packages worth as much as 4,500 pounds ($7,280) a person to companies in London’s financial district and the wealthy at the same time the U.K. government is implementing the deepest spending cuts since World War II.

And this is what a £4,500 ticket will get you

I visited the Olympic site back in March 2010, I asked back then what the chances were of getting tickets…the answer it seems is the same then as it is now.
