The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020) today announced an updated ticket plan for the postponed Games in 2021.
Tokyo 2020 confirmed that tickets that have been already purchased will be valid for the same session next year. The competition schedule for 2021 mirrors the schedule planned for 2020 and events will take place at the same competition venues that were originally planned.
Tokyo 2020 is working in cooperation with all stakeholders toward hosting a safe and secure Games in the summer of 2021. Coordination meetings for COVID-19 countermeasures are taking place regularly to comprehensively review and coordinate on a wide range of issues, including immigration control, medical examinations, and venue management.
Tokyo 2020 ticket sales have been incredibly successful for both the Olympic and Paralympic Games. A total of 33 Olympic sports with 339 events and 22 Paralympic sports with 540 events will be contested in the Games, which makes this the largest Games ever in terms of the number of sports lineups.
The details of the ticket refund process for residents of Japan who are unable to attend the session on the new dates were also announced. Tokyo 2020 will accept refund requests for Olympic tickets between 10-30 November 2020 and between 1-21 December 2020 for Paralympic tickets. For more information about the refund process, please refer to the ticket page and FAQs in the Tokyo 2020 Official Ticket Website.
For those living outside of Japan who purchased tickets through Authorised Ticket Resellers (ATRs), each ATR will have their individual processes for refund procedures. To learn more about ticket refund policy in each country, please contact your local National Olympic Committee (NOC) or ATRs. Contact details can be found here.
