2012 Olympic Scheduled Released
(2 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

The schedule for the 2012 Olympic Games in London has been released. The schedule includes the planned start times, venues and ticket prices for 600 competition sessions across all 26 Olympic sports. Artistic gymnastics begins July 28 with the men's qualification, and concludes Aug. 7 with the third and final day of apparatus finals. (Unlike in 2008, the event finals in 2012 will be conducted in Olympic order.) Tickets go on sale March 15, and prices are not cheap: Seats for the artistic finals range from £50-£450 (approximately $80-$722), matching swimming as one of the most expensive sports to see live. Only athletics, for the day which includes the men's 100M final, is pricier. Click here to download the full schedule in PDF (28 MB).

The prices are extortionate! A seat that cost me £31 for the World Championships last year (2010) in the exact same arena would now cost me £450. I do expect it to be a higher price for the Olymipcs, but this is hideous.

Completely agree with Becca about the prices. Add to that the venue (which is impossible to get to from most parts of England) so the accommodation cost will be on top. I'm just going to watch it all on TV - I'll probably see more anyway, plus I'll have the benefit of Christine Still and Mitch Fenner's enlightening commentary.

As an aside,have you seen the prices for the opening and closing ceremonies??! The audience will have to be made up of Russian oligarchs and sheikhs, because nobody else is going to be able to afford them. Laughable.

Wow, I went to the womens team finals in Atlanta and women's all around finals and tickets were only $250 ea. Granted they were nosebleeds.
