Some seats are corporate and athlete seats not taken up, but another reason is is that they were never actually originally 'sold out' after the initial sale, as for some reason they kept quite a lot of tickets held back and have had various releases of tickets over the last few months, why they did this I'm not sure but at times it seems like they're just trying to maximise profits. There was one event (a football match involving 2 not particularly exciting countries) that we had to buy category a price tickets cause that was all that was available at that time. Yet a few weeks later, all category prices were now available for the event and its the same now, for some reason they had held back the cheaper priced tickets and as a result we've paid more than we wanted to. The ticket prices in general have been OTT at times, they had quite a few empty seats for the women's diving final yesterday, but that may have been something to do with the fact that the best seats were £450, for an hour session and no-one well known like Tom Daley, which to me, even though it had a medal ceremony, is ridiculous.

I'm kind of pissed off considering we applied for loads of different event tickets yet didn't get any and then they said they were sold out. The event comes round on the TV and there's a ****load of spaces in the stands. Whats that all about?
