Answer for LOCOG ticketing

Answered By: 
The Mayor

LOCOG is unable to provide free tickets to any groups as it is relying on ticket sales to generate 25% of the £2bn required to stage the Games. However, I am determined that tickets for the Games are as affordable and accessible as possible, and LOCOG is talking with disabled groups on a range of options to be developed and announced next year.
