Pricing will be posted shortly so that fans will have the ability to adjust their submissions based on price at any time up until May 31.
The Australian Olympic Committee and CoSport, the leading provider of Olympic ticketing and hospitality, are pleased to announce that CoSport.com will exclusively offer Australian fans the chance to request tickets to their favourite events.
Should demand exceed supply for any sessions, then requests for those sessions will go into a ballot, and fans whose draw is successful will be able to purchase those tickets.
Those fans who miss out the first time will have another opportunity on a first-come, first-served basis during the live sales phase, which is expected to start on June 28, 2019.
In order to secure Individual Tickets offered as part of the Request Phase, Australian residents are invited to create a CoSport.com account and submit a non-binding ticket request by May 31, 2019.
All ticket requests submitted successfully by the deadline will be given equal consideration regardless of when they were submitted within the ticket Request Phase.
Although CoSport will offer tickets for sale in various phases up-to and through the Olympic Games, entering the initial Request Phase gives fans their best chance at securing the most sought-after tickets.
Therefore, interested buyers should carefully consider the event schedule, venue locations, budget and other factors before submitting a request. At the end of the request phase, no changes to ticket requests will be permitted.
Once the inventory is established, CoSport will confirm which of the requested tickets will be offered for purchase by June 20, 2019. At that time, payment must be processed by June 26, 2019.
Hotel and Ticket Packages from CoSport will be then available exclusively through CoSport.com to the Australian public starting June 20, 2019. Hotel and Ticket Packages will combine a wide range of event tickets, three- or four-star accommodations, daily breakfast and expert guidance from purchase through departure from the experienced CoSport team and knowledgeable local hosts.
“CoSport has a deep knowledge of Japan and is preparing to welcome fans of the Australian Team with an exciting variety of Individual Ticket and Package options,” said Robert F. Long, CoSport President.
“Our Hotel and Tickets Packages simplify attending the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games so our guests can focus on enjoying this once-in-a-lifetime experience. There will be plenty of opportunities to choose from once sales open, but the best packages will surely go fast.”
All ticket-inclusive offerings for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will be made available exclusively through CoSport.com, the only official ticketing agent in Australia for tickets to the 2020 Olympic Games. Details on the sales process – including timeline, pricing and terms and conditions – are available at CoSport.com.
“For our athletes and fans alike, there are few experiences more exhilarating than being there and being part of the Olympic experience,” AOC Chief Executive Officer Matt Carroll AM said.
“Together with CoSport, we are excited to extend an invitation to Australian Team fans from around the country to share this truly once-in-a-lifetime experience."
CoSport has been appointed by the Tokyo 2020 Organizing Committee as the sole Authorized Ticket Reseller in Australia.
On July 24, 2020, the world will come together in Tokyo for the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony, followed by 16 days of competition in Japan’s capital city. Demand for tickets to these highly-anticipated Games is expected to be strong.
