Olympic Football Hotels

Olympicfootball

In a little over two months the eyes of the world will be on the UK as the Olympic juggernaut arrives in London for the 2012 summer games.

With ticket demand high and most events already fully subscribed, most people not lucky enough to have tickets will have resigned themselves to watching the two week spectacle on TV.

There is however still chance to witness the action first-hand at one of the 6 venues staging the men and women’s Olympic football competition. Tickets for the 5 venues outside London are still plentiful, but this is sure to change as the event approaches and anticipation builds.

Ticket demand is sure to grow over the next 8 or 9 weeks, and so too will demand for hotel rooms in the host cities, so be sure to book early and use the Hotel Price Scanner to secure the best available rates.
