The Yomiuri ShimbunApplications for luxury ticket packages for the 2020 Tokyo Games, some costing millions of yen, will be accepted from the end of August, the organizing committee of the 2020 Tokyo Games announced Wednesday.
The ticket packages combine the most expensive seats for different events with services such as food and drinks at Games venue lounges. Featured events include the opening and closing ceremonies, and a total of 16 sports, including the popular choices of athletics, swimming, tennis, baseball, softball and golf.
There are five ranks from Platinum Pavilion, which contains the most services, to Silver. In principle, the rank is decided by the venues involved.
The most expensive ticket package is ¥6.35 million (not including tax), and lets holders into the opening and closing ceremonies at the New National Stadium and the finals of the men’s and women’s 100-meter races and 4x100-meter relays.
A 4-day golf package will cost ¥770,000, and the baseball final package will cost ¥350,000. The cheapest package will be ¥90,000 for the gymnastics preliminaries.
Applications will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis on the organizing committee’s website (https://officialhospitality.tokyo2020.org), but ticket seekers must register their name and e-mail address on the site before applying. Registration began Wednesday.Speech
