The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020) announced on Wednesday 15 January that applications for participation in the second lottery for sales of Paralympic Games tickets will be accepted from residents of Japan during the period of 15 – 29 January 2020.

A record 3.1 million tickets were requested during the first Paralympic Games ticket lottery. In view of the unprecedented demand, this second lottery represents their best chance to obtain tickets for the Paralympics Games.

The Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games will be the biggest and the most exciting ever. Over just 12 days, from the day following the Opening Ceremony on 25 August until 6 September, 22 sports and 539 events will be contested by a record 4,400 athletes.

Tickets for all sports are being offered at affordable prices, with the aim of encouraging people to attend with their family and friends. Seats at competitive events will be priced from just JPY 900 and will cost no more than JPY 7,000.

This is part of the Organising Committee’s commitment to enhance the family atmosphere at the Paralympic Games and attract as many young spectators as possible. Tickets for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies will cost from JPY 8,000 up to JPY 150,000.

Residents of Japan must apply for tickets online via the Tokyo 2020 Official Ticket Website. All prices and the full schedule for all 539 medal events are available there.

Pre-registration via the TOKYO 2020 ID portal is necessary to enter the lottery; this can be done at https://id.tokyo2020.org/. The lottery results will be announced on 18 February, with payments due by 2 March 2020.

Should they not be successful in this second lottery, residents of Japan will still be able to purchase tickets during the last phase of ticket sales, which will commence in the spring of 2020.

Overseas Residents

People living outside of Japan will be able to purchase tickets through Authorised Ticket Resellers (ATRs). ATRs have the exclusive right to sell Games tickets in agreed countries and regions. The sales launch date in each territory may vary depending on each ATR’s sales plans and schedules.
