The ticket lottery for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 came to a close and it successfully attracted millions of Japanese fans eager to secure their Olympic Games experience. In total, 2020 ID registrations, the first step that is required before purchasers could enter the ticket lottery, reached 7,508,868 and the ticket website was visited by over 24,000,000 people during the application period. The deadline was a 12-hour window.
Millions of tickets are available at affordable prices and there are opportunities to get one according to Tokyo 2020 spokesperson Masa Takaya, continuing that the Organizing Committee was thrilled with the outcome. People living outside Japan will be allowed to buy via Authorised Ticket Resellers (ATRs) in their home countries. There is a list of ATRs available on the Tokyo 2020 website via a link. Japan has a strong history of welcoming guests and this 2020 Olympics will be a fantastic way to express their hospitality as only the Japanese can do it.
The Olympics will be just one way that Japan is showing leadership in the world, as with the G20 being held in Osaka this month will be another.
