Interesting, everyone I've ever talked to who's been to both has said they prefer London. I suppose it really depends on what you're after though, I can certainly see a more homely appeal in Dublin.

Pretty stoked, kind of have been since Beijing ended. Is the logo still retarded?

You reckon the logo is bad, check out the mascots!!



As one commentator amusingly put it, "the consequence of a drunken one night stand between a teletubby and the Michelin Man."

Extraordinary!

I'm attracted to those mascots. Is the blue one supposed to be the female? She's hot.

Ticket prices have been announced:

Quote:
Today we are announcing the ticket prices for the London 2012 Olympic Games and as a Front row subscriber we are thrilled to be able to tell you first.

We want our venues to be filled with enthusiastic sports fans so we have designed a pricing strategy to include a wide range of prices.

We are also delighted to reveal that there will now be up to 8.8 million tickets available for the Olympic Games, an increase of 800,000 from the previous figure, and 75 per cent of these tickets will go on sale from March 2011 through a public application process.

Here are some key features of our pricing strategy to help you plan your Games experience and be ready when applications open in March 2011:

A wide range of ticket prices including:

- 90% of tickets at or below £100
- Two-thirds of tickets at or below £50
- 2.5 million tickets at or below £20

Full-price tickets starting at £20 for every Olympic sport.

A special ‘pay your age’ offer. Young people who are aged 16 and under (at 27 July 2012) will pay their age for a ticket. Seniors aged 60 and over (at 27 July 2012) will pay £16. These ‘pay your age’ ticket prices and senior ticket prices will be available at one-third of the 640-plus sports events.

Opening Ceremony tickets start from £20.12.

The price of a ticket for a wheelchair space includes a companion seat located next to it.
Please note: all ticket prices are in UK pounds sterling (£) and apply to tickets that will be purchased at London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games ticket information. Tickets are only available for sale via this website to residents of the UK or a designated European country.

Residents outside the UK should purchase tickets from their local National Olympic Committee (NOC) or their Authorised Ticket Reseller (ATR). In time, prices will be listed on the NOC/ATR websites in the local currency and will be subject to a London 2012 approved international sales channel service charge.

View all Olympic Games ticket prices

We will announce Paralympic Games ticket prices separately in 2011.

The draft daily Olympic Games competition schedule has also been released. View the draft competition schedule

Over the coming months, we will be telling you all about how you can buy tickets and when they go on sale.

To make sure your family and friends don’t miss out on this exciting information, encourage them to sign up and register their interest in London 2012 ticketing. Send them an invitation now

London ticket applications start March 15.

I believe the U.S. ticketing will be through CoSport.
