Previous experience from other Olympics ◦ 2004 Athens - small size of city, limited capacity of venues ◦ 2008 Beijing - artificially low prices ◦ 2000 Sydney - large city, sports loving country
How can the Head of Ticketing for the 2012London Olympics reconcile the diverging needs? He is expectsed to sell $650 million worth oftickets, yet the stadia need to be filled and anydecision has to be accepted as fair by thepublic… Maximize revenues Maximize attendance at all venues and dates Fill the seats with knowledge spectators Ensure tickets for the average Londoner
Culture and atmosphere of the city Location of city affects the reach ◦ Beijing, London Internet ticketing Global financial crisis
Beijing experience ◦ Tickets sold to sponsors, IOC staff, media may go unused ◦ Spectators purchase tickets for day long events but attend only few hours ◦ People buy tickets as souvenirs with no intention to attend ◦ Availability to convenient transport
Max revenues are generated by broadcast rights. $1.7 billion for the beijing games. Broadcast rights and international sponsorships are controlled by IOC. The locog has control over the ticketing revenues, the domestic sponsorships, and the licensing (merchandising). Ticketing revenues fluctuate in a well-defined bandwidth, with price being highly variable, The inventory of available seats is mostly fixed.
Beijing saw a lot of short attention-span spectators, who would leave their seats after a couple of hours or a couple of events. Beijing authorities bussed in „artificial‟ spectators Other budgeted „other events‟, set to amount to 365,000 seats? Maybe some creative events could boost that number? Or maybe even extend the closing ceremony to two days? Although Beijing was far from ticket revenue maximization, it did manage to sell out the entire 6.8 million stock of tickets, something no other Olympic game has done since the 1984 los Angeles.
Ticket revenue is a complex equation with several tiers. ◦ At the top are corporate tickets, typically accompanied by special facilities and access. ◦ At the bottom are simple limited-event tickets. ◦ The opening and closing ceremonies are the blockbusters: held in the biggest venues, fetching the fattest prices, and certain to sell out. Historically, prices vary from just below $1000 to less than $5
80% of olympics tickets are expected to be sold in the UK The remaining 20% of tickets are predicted to be sold internationally. Experience of previous games is that ◦ majority of attenders come from within 1 hour‟s travel time; ◦ Most will be day visitors, but some will stay over. Top countries will be the us, canada, australia, france, germany, netherlands , japan (the pattern mirrors normal london tourism.)
Most spectators will see 1 - 3 events over 2 - 3 days, giving ample opportunity for entertainment in between sports fixtures Some will stay for the evening Availability of late-night transport will have an impact The 100m mens final is on a Sunday evening, as is the closing ceremony; The opening ceremony is a Friday evening.
Tickets need to be affordable and accessible to as many people as possible. The ticketing plans have the clear aim of filling venues to the rafters. All tickets for events in and around london to include a travel card.
Head of ticketing – Paul Williamson Mechanics at these games ◦ 8 million tickets to 26 sports over 17 games ◦ The tickets were priced from $10 to $ 100 ◦ 75% of these tickets will be on sale to the public from March 2011 ◦ 66% of these tickets will be priced at £50 or under ◦ 90% of these tickets will be priced at £100 or under ◦ 31% (2.5 million tickets )will be priced at £20 or under ◦ Ticket allotment was to be regulated by a matching process of demand vs availability ◦ In case of oversubscription for a particular type lottery system was to be followed
Out of the 8.8 million tickets available 25% tickets to be allotted to 205 national Olympic committees, federations and IOC affiliates – on request basis(by late 2010) and full payment By summer of 2011 both would be processed and informed of allotment Remaining tickets to be offered for direct sale
Easy sells – opening and closing ceremony, track & field finals, swimming,gymnastics ◦ Demand exceed supply ◦ Will sell at any price ◦ Expected revenue 40 % Football ◦ Most popular sport on earth ◦ 2 million tickets, expected revenue 10% ◦ Constrained by absence of big stars due to age factor Hard sells – all other sports ◦ Supply exceeds demand Targets set ◦ Sell 85 % seats
Willingness to pay depends on ◦ Comparison with other sporting events in the area ◦ Global appeal of the sport ◦ Local appeal ◦ Stage of the event ◦ Particular athlete or team
