LOCOG said this afternoon that there were still a small number of tickets left for the Olympic opening ceremony for people willing to shell out more than £1,500 per ticket.
A spokeswoman said "a few" tickets were left in category AA, where a seat will set you back £2,012 and category A, where tickets are £1,600 each.
In the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff there are plans to close the top tier and move spectators down closer to the action, there is a similar plan for Hampden Park in Glasgow - but there are still half a million football tickets on sale.
With Lord Coe saying some ticket prices could be lowered there could be hope that the football venues could benefit from full stadiums.
London 2012 Chairman Seb Coe told ITV News Sports Editor Steve Scott he would consider reducing the price of the remaining expensive Olympics tickets in a bid to help them sell out.
He said: "We'll look at all those sorts of things, we've got any number of options" but added he did not think organisers would actually have many tickets left.
