Athletics tickets for Paris 2024 the most expensive ever

Athletics tickets for Paris 2024 the most expensive ever | The Business of Events Management | Scoop.it

Both the minimum price of 24 euros and the maximum price of 950 euros will be the highest ever recorded. They will surpass London 2012 and, of course, Tokyo 2020, whose projections were affected by the effects of the pandemic.

John Beech's insight:

See https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2010/oct/15/london-2012-olympics-ticket-prices which gives the highest London 2012 as £2012.  Coe seems to be losing his memory.
