New chance
This is the last ticketing phase exclusively reserved for residents of Japan. Considering the unprecedented demand, this is another chance to get Tokyo 2020 tickets and to be part of what will be the biggest and the most exciting Olympic Games ever.

With a record 339 events in 33 sports, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will offer non-stop action for everyone that you won't want to miss.

Key events
Tickets for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Boxing events will be available for the first time. Due to a venue change, tickets for the Marathon will not be on sale; as well as tickets for the triathlon, marathon swimming and equestrian eventing cross-country events as the competition schedule is still under consideration.

Tickets are still available for every other Olympic event as well as the Opening and Closing Ceremonies – although availability varies.

Something for everyone
Ticket prices have been set to suit a wide range of budgets, allowing as many people as possible to attend events. Millions of tickets will be available at affordable prices, starting with general tickets priced at JPY 2,500 and half of all tickets priced at JPY 8,000 or less.

A symbolic ticket price of JPY 2,020 is offered to families and groups resident in Japan whose members include children, senior citizens or individuals with impairments; this price will also be available in conjunction with a school programme targeting over one million students across Japan.
