Wembley, Wimbledon and Lord's will all be used to host Olympic events if London's bid to host the games in 2012 is successful.
The world-renowned venues - as well as a new Olympic Park in east London - will all be used in a London Olympics along with tourist landmarks Hyde Park, Regent's Park and Horse Guards Parade.
Wembley will host both the men's and women's football finals, tennis will be held at Wimbledon and Lord's will stage archery events while athletics, swimming and cycling will be at the Olympic Park.
Football matches in earlier rounds will be played across the country at Cardiff (Millennium Stadium), Glasgow (Hampden Park), Windsor Park (Belfast), Manchester (Old Trafford), Newcastle (St James' Park) and Birmingham (Villa Park).
Hyde Park will have road cycling and triathlon events, Regents Park will stage baseball and softball while there will be beach volleyball in Horse Guards Parade, a stone's throw from Westminster.
Brand new facilities will be built in the Olympic Park in the east of the capital as part of plans to regenerate a rundown area of the city. They will include an 80,000 seat stadium, an aquatic centre - which will be built whether or not the bid is successful - and a velodrome.
The details all form the core of London's bid submitted to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) this week.
Bid chairman Barbara Cassani launched the blueprint at a ceremony in Covent Garden today in front of Prime Minister Tony Blair.
Cassani said: "The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games will enhance sport in London and the UK forever. "Our people, especially the young, will benefit from new facilities. Our next generation of athletes will be better equipped to develop into future Olympians.
"Our Games will deliver the best for athletes. A compact Olympic Park with easy access from living quarters to competition venues.
"Competitors will be inspired to deliver personal best performances against the backdrop of London's world-famous landmarks. Let's take this opportunity to make a leap for UK sport, a leap for the Olympic Movement and a leap for London."
Bid organisers are keen to stress that their plans for the Olympic Park offer the most compact venue ever proposed to the IOC with many of the 28 sports within 15 minutes of the athletes village, and only a seven-minute train ride from central London.
IOC president Jacques Rogge has said the scale of the Games recently has threatened to spiral upwards out of control and needs to slim down.
A spokesman added: "We will deliver excellence without extravagance. London 2012 is committed to ensuring that no venues are built without a clear plan for their post-Olympic use. There will be no white elephants at the London Olympics."
Sporting greats at the presentation at the Royal Opera House included rowing record-breaker Sir Steve Redgrave, Sir Roger Bannister, the man who broke the four-minute mile 50 years ago, and Paula Radcliffe, marathon world record-holder and one of Britain's strongest medal hopes at the Athens Games this summer.
In Olympic football 16 men's teams and 10 women's teams compete. The men's tournament, open to under-23 teams who are each allowed to field three over-age players, comprises a preliminary round, quarter-finals, semi-finals and final, and the women play quarter-finals, semi-finals and final.
