Ticket sales schedule for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020

We will begin accepting applications for the ticket lottery from 10am on 9 May 2019. There may be a large amount of access to the website when the website first opens, and before the application deadline, making it hard to access the website. Therefore, we advise you to submit your application in a timely manner. The ticket lottery will be conducted fairly and transparently, and the order in which applications are received will have no influence on the lottery result.
Please note that the sales schedule is subject to change.
