Think you know how much London 2012’s Olympic games will cost? Think again. The £9bn figure that we have seen, is just the largest part of a complicated set of arrangements involving public and private finance.
We thought it would be a good idea to gather all that data together in one place – to provide a definitive guide to this Olympic’s funding.
We’ve pulled together data published by the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA), the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) – and what we know of the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Locog) to piece together a detailed picture of funding and spending.
