Beijing Olympics: Always Low Prices

Beijing announces 'affordable' Olympics
Beijing promised an affordable Olympics in 2008 with the announcement today of ticket prices that are as low as a tenth of those charged at the last games in Athens.

The majority of spectators will pay no more than 100 yuan (£7) to watch the world’s best athletes under a ticketing policy that reflects the low average income of the planet’s most populous nation.

The first of 7m tickets will go on sale next year. At the bird’s nest stadium, executive seats for the opening ceremony will cost 5,000 yuan - about half the most expensive rate in Greece two years ago.
