Athletics stadium in Olympics also not full

I was very unhappy seeing tonight the Olympic Stadium in Greece on TV, not being full (I didn’t expect that). About 20,000 seats were empty (out of 72,000). I mean, I have never seen any olympic athletic games or world championship not being full in the evening happenings.

Again, the problem is the price:
Euro 90-A (ticket level)
70-B
40-C

The cheapest ticket is 40, about $50 bucks. Well, this is the price of two-three days of work in Greece. That’s just too much.

What a shame. Whoever from IOC/greek-government asked for such pricing, is a jerk.
