London 2012 Game Preparation Series

Sunday, May 8, 2011

Athletes, volunteers and the British public will help the London 2012 Organizing Committee go through its paces ahead of next year's Games, as it tests crucial aspects of its operations. More than 10,000 volunteers, 8,000 athletes and 250,000 spectators will participate in a 12-month testing program for the Olympic and Paralympic Games, starting this summer and ending in May 2012. Branded the London Prepares series, the agenda will see some world class sporting events come to London's iconic existing venues, as well as brand new venues in the Olympic Park. The London Prepares series will spotlight on testing aspects such as the field of play, results, timing and scoring systems, how teams work together and how people move around venues. There are different types of events, events that are being organized and ticketed by LOCOG (2012 Organizing Committee go), events run by LOGOG that are not ticketed, and events that are not organized by LOCOG. There are four ticketed LOCOG events taking place this summer, two of which are taking place on the Olympic Park. Tickets will be available exclusively via Ticketmaster from 26 May 2011, with prices ranging from £5 to £35. Payment is possible only by Visa card only (debit, credit and prepaid product).Here are some picturesi n London prepares series.
