Most Expensive Olympic Events To Attend

It's the first rule of the marketplace - scarcity equals value. So, when an organization is tasked with holding an event of worldwide importance, one that occurs only every four years, tickets to said event are going to range from costly to stratospherically so. These are the sports that'll cost you the most to see at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The opening ceremony isn't technically a sport, but watching it live requires a big financial outlay just the same. The opening ceremony represents the one instance where your country is guaranteed its share of attention - at least for as long as it takes your nation's athletes to enter Stratford's Olympic Stadium and assemble. Seats in the highest price range for the opening ceremonies retailed for more than the per capita income of some of the Games' less developed countries - roughly $3,100.
