Process for Buying Tickets

Like the previous Olympic games, there will likely be a lottery system that will allow residents to get “early-bird” tickets. Once an applicant has been selected from the lottery system, they will have a set amount of time to purchase the ticket (in the past it has been about a one week time limit). After the lottery process has concluded, general ticket sales will open for Japan residents as well as residents of other countries.

Tickets for those who reside outside of Japan will be available for purchase through the National Olympic Committee (NOC) of their respective country or an Authorized Ticket Reseller (ATR). The application for buying tickets will vary from country to country.

Also, keep in mind that VISA will be the only payment type accepted on the Tokyo 2020 Ticket website and at the ticket box offices (although NOCs may accept other payment types at their own discretion).

 

Ticket Sale Dates

Although exact ticket sale dates have yet to be released, residents of Japan can now sign up to receive additional information about ordering tickets, and will be able to apply for tickets in spring of 2019.

A list of official vendors of Olympics tickets for those who reside outside of Japan will be published by spring of 2019 (usually a few days after the raffle launch).
