London 2012 issues new tenders

Sport Business News

The London 2012 Organising Committee (LOCOG) has announced a comprehensive sports testing programme that will form a key part of its preparations for the Games. In addition, it has outlined a new range of tendering opportunites for suppliers.

LOCOG's testing programme will focus primarily on testing the field of play, results, scoring and timing systems, as well as key operational procedures and functions. The programme is made up of three different types of events, namely:1. International Invitational Events, created and delivered by LOCOG2. International Federation (IF) events, delivered by LOCOG in partnership with the IFs and sports national governing bodies3. International events organised by sports national governing bodies and other organisations, with LOCOG testing operational aspectsSeb Coe, chair of LOCOG, said: " Our approach to operational delivery is similar to that of an athlete. You do not want to face any conditions at competition time that you have not prepared for. When the worlds greatest Olympic and Paralympic athletes come to London in the summer of 2012, every aspect of our delivery needs to be the best it can be. The invaluable experience we gain through our testing programme means we can 'road–test' all our operational plans and make sure we have all the knowledge we need to deliver a truly memorable Games in 2012. " Many of the events will be available to spectators with others restricted to technology and field of play testing. Some tickets will be sold by LOCOG and some will be sold by other event organisers. Further details of LOCOGs test event ticketing programme will be announced later in 2011. People who are interested in attending events should sign up to www. tickets. london2012. com and they will be sent further information as soon as it is available.
