9.58 popular ticket
LONDON (GBR): Tickets for all athletics sessions at the London Stadium for World Championships will go back on sale from 8 March at 10.00 am. Organisers have also increased the availability of the massively popular ‘Bolt ticket’ – a Â£9.58 children’s ticket in honour of the legendary Jamaican’s 100m world record, following a huge response from families purchasing tickets. Across both championships more than 200,000 children’s tickets have been purchased; for the IAAF World Championships 75,000 young fans have taken advantage of the ‘Bolt ticket’ whilst for the World Para Athletics Championships more than 100,000 tickets have been purchased for children as part of a Mayor of London backed schools ticket offer with 25,000 children’s Â£5 tickets also snapped up. “It’s great that the Bolt children’s ticket has sold so well and that more children will get the chance to attend. Athletics is a sport for all the family and it’s great to know that so many different age groups will be there in the stadium as a result of this offer. It feels good as an athlete to know children are getting a chance to enjoy the sport that has been so good to me,” said Bolt.
