Tickets to get into the Olympic Park have gone on sale for the Paralympic Games.
The 100,000 non-event tickets will allow ticket holders to get into the Park and watch Paralympic sport on the big screen, but will not allow access to sporting venues within the site.
Priced at £5 for adults and £1 for those aged under 16 and over 60, the tickets are for various days throughout the Paralympic Games.
Seb Coe, chairman of the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG), said: “I’m thrilled that we can give even more people the opportunity to experience the Olympic Park, soak up the atmosphere and perhaps catch some Paralympic action on the big screen.
“We wanted to give as many people as possible the opportunity to visit the Olympic Park and releasing more tickets is part of this commitment.”
LOCOG is encouraging all customers who purchase tickets to select the print at home option, to enable them to avoid potentially long queues at ticket box offices.
Approximately 2.3million tickets have now been sold for the Paralympic Games, more than for any previous Paralympic Games.
