Colorado Springs, Colo. – CoSport, the Official Hospitality and Ticket Provider and proud sponsor of the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee, announced today that live ticket sales for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 will open to the U.S. public on Tuesday, July 9 at 2 p.m. EDT.

Last month, CoSport held a Ticket Request Process in which more than one million users accessed CoSport.com to express interest and enter a ballot process requesting tickets to their favorite Olympic events. CoSport users whose ballots were successfully drawn were among the first Americans to secure Tokyo 2020 tickets.

CoSport’s record-breaking news followed a Japan-based ticket lottery where the Tokyo 2020 Organizing Committee also recorded millions of users requesting tickets reserved for residents of the host country.

In the United States, the most-requested Olympic events have been artistic gymnastics, swimming and athletics, followed by the Opening Ceremony, which will take place on July 24, 2020 in Tokyo’s New National Stadium. Three new Olympic sports debuting in Tokyo were also among the 20 most-requested of the Games’ 52 disciplines: skateboarding, sport climbing, and baseball, the latter of which is being re-introduced after a 12-year absence.

U.S.-based fans will have their next opportunity to purchase tickets on July 9 beginning at 2 p.m. EDT, when CoSport will sell tickets on a first come-first served basis, along with ticket-hotel combinations also offered in several configurations with accommodations, meals and expert guidance. Buyers should be sure to first register a CoSport.com user account to access the sale by July 9.

Japan’s strong demand for host country tickets will result in the majority of high-demand tickets being unavailable outside of that nation, with the United States sharing in remainders split among more than 100 territories.

“Although the United States represents one of the largest markets in the world, the Olympic Games endeavors to level the playing fields and spectator seats alike, with the United States being just one player sharing in limited global ticket allocations, following formidable Japanese demand,” said Robert F. Long, President of CoSport. “CoSport continues working hard to meet U.S. public demand, maximize allocation and provide open access throughout the ticketing process. As such, fans who did not obtain tickets during the Request Process shouldn’t lose hope, but rather take advantage of the Live Sales opportunity launching July 9.”

The Olympic Experience Experts, CoSport has spent decades bringing fans to the Games and has been preparing since 2015 in Tokyo, the world’s largest metropolitan area which expects another 1 million visitors for the 2020 Olympic Games.
