BOA Chairman: Olympic ticketing requires a 'huge investment'

Lord Moynihan, the chairman of the British Olympic Association, has urged the International Olympics Committee (IOC) to learn from a ticketing problem he said had dogged the previous three Games in Sydney, Athens and Beijing.

It is time to stop the blame game and also to recognise that this is such a major and complex issue ... This requires huge investment. We're not talking £100 million-£200 million. The IOC have now got to take the lead and make sure the investment is in place for a state-of-the-art ticketing policy. It is our view that LOCOG are working exceptionally hard to try to sort out as many of the challenges associated with ticketing as possible.
