London Olympics: 20 Million Applications For 6.6 Million Tickets

May 16, 2011 1:27 pm

We spotted this statistic on the London 2012 olympics:

“About 1.8 million people made more than 20 million applications for the 6.6 million tickets.

Standard prices range from £20 to £2,012 – the top ticket for the opening ceremony – and oversubscribed events will be decided by a ballot.

Ticket allocation is completely random, so some unlucky applicants might end up without any, while others may be allocated all the tickets they applied for.

A further two million tickets for the Paralympic Games go on sale on 9 September.”
