Ticketing has been the most contentious issue for London
organisers in the run-up to the July 27-Aug. 12 Games.
Demand for many events has outstripped supply, prompting
complaints about the way tickets were allocated, the cost and
technical glitches in handling applications.
Anger was fuelled at the weekend when Britain’s Sunday Times
newspaper reported that National Olympic Committees and
Authorised Ticket Resellers representing 54 nations had broken
rules over the sale of London 2012 tickets.
