There will be over 9 million tickets available for the 2012 Games, but who will get them and what is a fair price to pay to see an Olympic event?
We are calling on Londoners to have their say ahead of the official announcement of the ticketing strategy later this year. Please take part in our special online discussion forum to give your views on ticketing issues including supply, affordability, the risks of fraud and how to fill seats at less popular events.
Alternatively you can email your views to David Bellman at email@example.com. A summary of the comments will be presented to the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG).
LOCOG are working with Ticketmaster to distribute the tickets, which will go on sale through a ballot in 2011. 7.7 million will be available for the Olympics and 1.5 million for the Paralympic Games.
A 2009 survey by London Councils found that more than 44 per cent of Londoners want to go to the Games, a total of 3.3 million people that would potentially account for more than a third of tickets.
LOCOG have pledged that as many people as possible should be able to attend and initially suggested that more than 4.3 million tickets would be under £20 - but official prices have not yet been announced.
The review, by the Assembly's Economic Development, Culture, Sport and Tourism Committee, will look at all aspects of ticketing, including supply, affordability, the risks of fraud and how to fill seats at less popular events.
