Tickets are in demand for London Games in 2012

London 2012 organizers say two million people have registered for tickets to the Olympics.

When tickets go on sale in March, 8.8 million seats will be available at prices ranging from $31 for standard events to a symbolic 2,012 pounds ($3,105) for the top-priced seats at the opening ceremony.

Organizers are trying to raise nearly $700 million from ticket sales, a quarter of their operating budget.
