Get the data: Olympic ticket prices by sport and category

Following the publication of the Ticketing Report by London 2012 this week (thanks Claire Miller for the tip), we’ve extracted some of the data buried within. First up is Appendix V from the report: Price category of sold tickets by Olympic sport. We’ve put this into a table below, but you can also copy the spreadsheet here (or view a webpage here).

Unfortunately, like a lot of data in this report, there is some vital context lacking – namely, how many tickets were available, as well as how many were bought. If you do anything with this please let us know so we can pass it on:
