This coming 2021 Spring those with TOKYO 2020 ID will invited to participate in an online lottery. After the initial tickets are allocated, the remaining tickets will be made available on first-come, first-served basis.
The portal for TOKYO 2020 ID is currently available in Japanese with an English version set to launch before sales begin. The link is as follows https://id.tokyo2020.org/.
The lottery system aims to give as many people as possible a chance to purchase tickets for the event of their choice. After registering and obtaining their TOKYO 2020 ID, people will be able to apply for tickets during the lottery phase. Should their application be unsuccessful, they will still be able to buy tickets during the first-come, first-served phase.
