2012 chiefs report 'healthy' ticket demand
London 2012 organisers have confirmed that more than 1 million people have registered their interest in obtaining tickets to attend Olympic and Paralympic events.
Nearly all - 96 per cent - of ticket registrations came from by UK residents, with nearly a third from Greater London. More than 40 per cent were from people outside south east England.
Sebastian Coe, the chair of London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG), said: "What has been really interesting is that there has been significant interest across all Olympic and Paralympic sports.
"It should come as no surprise that the British public is so enthused by the prospect of world class sport coming to these shores, but it is pleasing to see that some of the lesser-known Olympic and Paralympic sports are also set to be well supported."
Tickets will go on sale in spring 2011 via an application process.
