National Lottery players quite literally helped to build the Olympics with funding supplied to construct the five major new sports facilities in the Olympic Park: the Olympic Stadium, a new VeloPark, Aquatics Centre, Handball Arena and Hockey Centre. In addition to this National Lottery funding also helped to create landmark venues that housed Olympic events elsewhere in the UK, such as Wembley, the Millennium Stadium and The O2.
Funding for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and the Cultural Olympiad was awarded by The Olympic Lottery Distributor. This distributor has now closed, however information about their investment in the Games can be found on their website.
