A record 2.2 million tickets have been sold to date, with 2.5 million expected to be made available in total.

“After the nation took the Olympic Games and TeamGB to their hearts in such a spectacular way, it is no surprise that they look set to do the same for ParalympicsGB and the Paralympic Games.  We are working flat out to stage a memorable Paralympic Games and I’m delighted that the enthusiasm and support for our Games from the UK shows no sign of wavering,”  said Seb Coe, LOCOG Chair.

Paralympic tickets are on sale at Prices start at just £10 (£5 for young people and seniors).

The majority of the tickets put on sale today are for Athletics. 25,000 of these have been made available, as well as smaller numbers of Wheelchair Basketball, Track Cycling, Equestrian and Rowing tickets. Athletics ticket prices at the Paralympic Games range from £10 to a top price £45, or just £5 for young people and seniors.
