Tokyo 2020 Friends and Family Ticket Support

The Athletes' Friends and Family program managed by the Tokyo 2020 Organizing Committee guarantees to each participating athlete the opportunity to purchase two tickets for their friends and family for each session in which they compete. The exceptions are swimming and shooting which allows just one ticket per session due to venue capacity. Opening and Closing Ceremony tickets are not included in the AFF ticketing program, however medal ceremony sessions, when not part of the event finals, are offered. Family or friends using AFF tickets must be someone directly involved or interested in the development of the athlete to which the ticket is associated. Questions may be asked at venues by Tokyo 2020 staff to identify this relationship. The AFF tickets may not be sold or resold to the general public. The process to order these tickets will be communicated your sport team leader/family and friends coordinator. Each athlete will be assigned a unique code that the athlete friends and family can enter into a portal and purchase the one to two tickets for the sessions that they will compete in (based on the sport entry list for that session). The Olympic and Paralympic Games only accept Visa credit cards.

USOPC Friends and Family Ticket Support

In addition to the AFF program, the USOPC will provide each athlete with two complimentary tickets per for friends and family (to the best of our ability to secure the resources). These will be distributed in advance (as much as possible) through the team leader or NGB friends and family coordinator. For many sports and depending on the sport schedule and timing of events, tickets for the next qualifying round will be distributed in Tokyo as athletes and teams advance and the next session is identified. Tickets for event finals are provided by Tokyo 2020 with very little notice due to the timing of when athletes qualify for the event. Once the USOPC receives the tickets they will be passed along to the team leader or NGB friends and family coordinator. It will be up to the team leader or NGB friends and family coordinator to pass the tickets along to the friends and family. The USOPC will not provide Opening or Closing Ceremony tickets.

For additional ticket needs, please remember that CoSport is the only authorized ticket retailer in the U.S. to purchase tickets. There may be tickets listed on other websites but there is no guarantee those tickets are from a legitimate and valid source and could be fraudulent.  At the recent Rugby World Cup in Tokyo, over 7,000 fraudulent tickets were discovered leaving many ticket buyers without valid tickets. During the Games, Tokyo 2020 will be selling any available inventory from the venue box offices and on their website.
