Women's soccer in Wales kicks off London 2012 schedule

Feb 15 (Reuters) - A women's soccer match in Wales will kick off the 2012 Olympics programme a full two days before the flame is lit in London for 'the greatest show on earth'.

The competition schedule with dates, times and prices for the 19-day sporting extravaganza was published online (www.tickets.london2012.com) on Tuesday after years of planning and exactly a month before 6.6 million public tickets go on sale.

The very first event will be more around 200km away to the west at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium, which hosts a preliminary match for the women's soccer tournament at 1600 local time (1500 GMT) on July 25.

Coventry, Glasgow's Hampden Park, Manchester United's Old Trafford and Newcastle's St. James' Park also host soccer preliminaries before the flame is lit at the Olympic Stadium, West Ham United's future home.

The schedule lists more than 670 sessions at 34 venues in 26 sports, with some 2.5 million tickets priced at 20 pounds or less and children enjoying a "pay your age" scheme.

Tickets go on sale from March 15 to April 26, with those for oversubscribed sessions allocated via a ballot rather than a first come, first served basis.
