Planning a visit to watch the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. You will have to wait till May for your opportunity to get the Tokyo 2020 events tickets.
The Organising Committee for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games (Tokyo 2020) has revealed that sale of the Games’ tickets for the fans from other nationalities will open in May.
At present, only residents of Japan are eligible to purchase tickets from the Tokyo 2020 official ticket website. From mid-May, people from overseas will be able to purchase tickets from their country’s authorised ticket re-sellers and official ticketing websites.
The organising committee though has not confirmed a date when the Tokyo 2020 ticket lottery will be opened to foreign citizens.
The tickets will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis, online as well as over the counter at ticketing booths across Tokyo. Non-residents of Japan can also purchase tickets at the ticketing booths.
Over 4.48 million tickets have already been sold to Japanese residents, in two phases of domestic Olympic ticket lotteries. An estimated 9 million tickets are still available.
Residents of Japan can apply tickets via postcard in a third lottery starting February 20 and March 13 for the Olympics and Paralympics, respectively.
Organisers are still considering when Paralympic tickets will be put on sale globally.
