With less than two years to go until the All England Club welcomes the Olympic Games to SW19, the Olympic committee (LOCOG) has revealed what it’ll cost to secure a seat in front of the action.
Tickets for the event, which is scheduled to take place at Wimbledon from Saturday 28 July 2012 through to Sunday 5 August, will start from £20 for the outside courts.
No.1 Court tickets will fetch from £35-£95, while a coveted Centre Court ticket ranges from £30 to as much as £225 for the final.
There are also special offers to look out for, including the innovative ‘pay your age’ offer, where people aged 16 and under will be charged the equivilent of their years (in pound sterling) for a ticket. Meanwhile, those over the age of 60 may also be able to secure tickets for just £16 – but this is yet to be confirmed, since only a third of the 640 Olympic events will be made eligible for the offer.
Though the price list has been released, tickets will not actually go on sale until March 2011, where the committee will send out 75% of the proposed 8.8million to be available for Olympic events.
LOCOG announced its plans for the Olympic tennis event at the All England Club earlier this year. Here’s a reminder of what you can expect from the showpiece tournament.
Information on Paralympic ticket prices will be released in the new year.
