If you've been wondering, "When do Tokyo 2020 Olympic tickets go on sale?", here's your answer.

Tickets for the next Games, which will be celebrated in the Japanese capital from 24 July to 9 August 2020, have now been released to international fans.

This is separate to the ticket lottery process for Japan-based fans.

Country-by-country Olympics 2020 tickets sales

Around 30 per cent of the expected 7.8 million Games tickets have been reserved for international spectators, with Tokyo 2020 organisers keen that the "vast majority" of tickets go to local fans.

This first phase of international ticket sales is being run by Authorised Ticket Resellers, or ATRs. Each National Olympic Committee (NOC) has been assigned an ATR, and fans must purchase their tickets through the ATR in their nation of residence.

A full list of ATRs is available here.

Demand is expected to be high. Games organisers had to extend the ballot registration period for Japanese fans, with over 7.5 million registrations and more than 24 million hits received on the ticketing website.

Every NOC has been allocated a certain number of tickets to meet the expected demand.

Sales periods will differ between ATRs for each nation, so fans should check with their ATR for exact dates.

Tokyo 2020 ticket prices

To know how much Olympic tickets are, you'll have to check with the ATR in your nation as Tokyo 2020 ticket prices will vary between ATRs. Each ATR will set its own pricing for their tickets.

In Japan, half of all tickets were priced at 8,000 yen (approximately US$70) or less, with the cheapest general tickets priced at 2,500 yen (US$23).

There are also special tickets priced at 2,020 yen (US$18) to mark the Games year.

The most expensive tickets for the Opening Ceremony and Closing Ceremony cost locals in excess of 220,000 yen (US$2,030), while athletics remained the most expensive sport, with the men's 100m final featuring tickets priced at 130,000 yen (US$1,200).

Further 2020 Olympics tickets sales

After this stage of sales, further tickets will be made available in Japan, with the 'first come, first served' phase beginning in the spring of 2020.

International residents outside Japan will be able to purchase tickets alongside Japanese fans on Tokyo 2020's official ticket website at the prices set for the Japanese market.

Any last-minute sales will also be available from physical official ticket box offices across Tokyo.

How and Where To Buy Olympic Tickets

For people living outside of Japan, the best way to purchase tickets will be from official ticket resellers in your country. Usually only one seller will be designated per country. Check the Tokyo Olympic Committee’s Tokyo 2020 Authorized Ticket Reseller List for the designated reseller in your country. Most of the resellers listed on their page currently have some basic information about purchasing tickets on their sites, some allow you to buy a Priority Access Pass (see below), but others have yet to post any information.

How Much Will Tokyo Olympic Tickets Cost?

According to the Tokyo Olympic Organising Committee, tickets for the opening ceremony will range from Y15,000 to Y300,000 (about US$220 to US$2680). Average ticket prices for events will cost from Y2500 to Y130,000 (about US$60 to US$1160) and half of tickets will cost less than Y8000 (about US$44).

What is a Priority Access Pass?

Some official ticket resellers are offering something called a Priority Access Pass. To be honest, we’re not 100% sure how these work, but they appear to grant preferred access to online ticket sales from the reseller in question. The UK ticket reseller site has a good page on the Priority Access Pass.

When Will Tokyo Olympic Tickets Go On Sale?

As soon as sale dates and purchase locations are announced, we will announce them on this page.

Tokyo 2020 Olympics ticket prices unveiled

By Reuters Staff

2 Min Read

TOKYO (Reuters) - The organizers of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics unveiled domestic ticket prices for the Games on Friday ranging from less than $18 up to $2,760, the top rate for a place at the opening ceremony.

Tickets for many events start at the symbolic price point of 2,020 yen ($17.96) but these are only for group sales, while the cheapest individual tickets will go on sale for 2,500 yen ($22.23).

More than half of all tickets will be sold for less than 8,000 yen ($71.15), according to organisers. The cheapest tickets are to be found for sports such as soccer, hockey and the marathon.

The Tokyo prices are roughly in line with those for the London Olympics in 2012 but are more expensive than Rio 2016, although fluctuating exchange rates make comparisons difficult.

At London 2012, the most expensive opening ceremony tickets cost $2,618 at today’s exchange rate.

As in previous Games, athletics is the most expensive event with the highest priced tickets coming in at 130,000 yen ($156.12).

Tickets will go on sale in Japan in spring 2019. The pricing strategy for tickets to be sold internationally has not yet been announced.

Tokyo 2020 Olympics opening ceremony ticket price ceiling set at ¥288,000

The organizing committee for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games has set the maximum prices for opening ceremony admission tickets, sources close to the matter revealed Monday.

The proposed ceiling for the Tokyo Games and Paralympic Games opening ceremony tickets is at ¥288,000 (about $2,600) and ¥144,100, respectively. A meeting will be held Tuesday to discuss the pricing and sales strategy of the admission tickets.

According to officials, the price of the Olympic opening ceremony is similar to the cost of tickets for the 2012 London Games, but the cost of its sister ceremony was set higher than the 2016 Summer Paralympics in Rio to increase the value of the multi-sport event for athletes with disabilities.

Admission tickets for Olympic events are said to start at ¥2,000, with Paralympic events starting at ¥1,000.

The organizing committee aims to gain approval for ticket prices at the International Olympic Committee board of directors meeting in July, with sales expected to start sometime next summer.

Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 Opening Ceremony Behind The Scenes

The 2020 Olympics have been postponed until 2021, with new dates already announced. Now, the Games will take place from July 23 to August 8 in Tokyo. “Every Olympics is a chance to reveal the best of the host city and its people,” says Condé Nast Travelertravel specialistAmy Tadehara. She works with InsideJapan Tours, which has put together several itineraries for the Tokyo Olympics. “I am thrilled that the world will see true Japanese omotenashi: a generous spirit of selfless hospitality towards visitors that goes above and beyond expectations.” It’s been four years since the last Summer Games in Rio, so here are the answers to every question you have about the event.

When are the 2021 Olympics?

The Tokyo Olympics were originally scheduled to kick off with Opening Ceremonies on July 24, 2020 and extend across more than two weeks, ending August 9. The IOC just announced the new dates will be almost exactly a year later. The Games will now begin on July 23, 2021, and end on August 8.

Where are the 2021 Olympics?

The Games will be held in more than 40 venues, the majority in and around Tokyo, with some events for soccer, baseball, and softball further afield. In the capital, the venues are in two areas: the Heritage Zone, which makes use of infrastructure from the city’s 1964 Games, and, closer to the water, the newly developed Tokyo Bay Zone.

Where is the Olympic stadium?

The new National Stadium is built on the site of the old stadium in the Heritage Zone, in Tokyo’s Shinjuku district, in the Outer Garden of the Meiji Shrine. Japanese architect Kengo Kuma supervised the design, taking inspiration from Edo-period temples and working largely in cedar and larch wood.

How much are tickets for the 2021 Olympics?

Individual event tickets currently range in price from about $40 (the beach volleyball preliminaries) to just over $1,100 (the track and field medal competition), with many priced from $100 to $300. There are also packages, which bundle together accommodations and tickets, and sometimes include transportation and VIP hospitality passes. These start at about $4,800 and top out at over $19,000—that’s per person, double occupancy in hotels. There are also simpler packages that combine a ticket and hospitality pass to a single event; these go from about $1,200 to $1,700 each.

How do I buy tickets?

Tickets went on sale last year and continue to be available. But anyone outside of Japan has to buy tickets from the authorized ticket reseller in their country of residence. For those of us in the United States, that’s CoSport. At this point, most tickets to individual events through CoSport are sold out, except for basketball, boxing, volleyball (including beach volleyball), and track and field events.

Closer to the Games, those outside of Japan will also be able to buy tickets directly from the Tokyo Olympics’ official ticket website. While this was originally scheduled to begin in spring 2020, it has been postponed until further notice given the postponement of the games as a whole.

How does the postponement impact purchased tickets?

If you have already purchased tickets to the Olympics, the IOC says your tickets will be honored in 2021. If you are no longer able to attend, you will be refunded. If for any reason the Games can no longer secure your place (say, if the event you have tickets to is being moved to a smaller venue), your tickets will be refunded. For questions about any of the above, reach out to the authorized ticket seller you purchased from.
