Games tickets (Updated on 10 July 2021)

Following a Five Party Meeting and Local Municipalities Working Group meeting on 8 July, Tokyo 2020 initially announced that events in Hokkaido and Fukushima would be open to spectators. However, each of Hokkaido and Fukushima informed Tokyo 2020 that it has since decided to hold all events in its prefecture without spectators, taking into account, in the case of Hokkaido, the difficulty of preventing travel from Tokyo, where a state of emergency has been declared, and in the case of Fukushima, the recent increase in the rate of new coronavirus infections elsewhere in the country and the responses of the other local authorities concerned. Therefore, no spectators will be permitted at any session taking place at the Sapporo Dome and the Fukushima Azuma Baseball Stadium.

Games tickets (Updated on 9 July 2021)

The decision was made at the Five-Party meeting held on 8 July that no spectators will be allowed into venues located in Tokyo, Chiba, Saitama and Kanagawa during the Olympic Games.

We deeply regret for all the ticket purchasers that this measure had to be put in place, though it is a critical measure to prevent the infection spread.

On the other hand, spectators up to 50% of venue capacity and not more than 10,000 people will be allowed into venues located in Hokkaido, Miyagi, Fukushima, Ibaraki and Shizuoka. About the sessions subject to the lottery to reduce spectators, the result will be announced in the early morning on 10 July. Please be aware of and make sure to take the COVID-19 countermeasures when visiting the venue.

Overseas Spectators at Tokyo 2020 Games(updated on 22 March 2021)

At the five-party discussion held on March 20, a policy on entry of the overseas Games spectators into Japan was determined.

Currently, the situation of COVID-19 in Japan and many other countries around the world continues to be very challenging, including the emergence of mutant strains, whilst international travel remains severely restricted globally, the parties on the Japanese side have come to the conclusion that overseas ticket holders will not be able to enter Japan at the time of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The handling policy and process of those tickets which were purchased from NOCs/NPCs or the Authorised Ticket Resellers(ATR) in the various territories, including refund, will be announced and taken care of by them. Please contact NOC/NPC or ATR of the respective territory for more information or inquiry.
