Olympics tick­ets on­line

The West Australian - - NEWS -

Gen­eral tick­ets for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics will go on sale as soon as April.

The Games’ or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee wants to pro­mote ticket sales in tan­dem with the Golden Week hol­i­day pe­riod and height­en­ing the mood for the event.

The com­mit­tee plans to ini­tially sell tick­ets only on the in­ter­net.

As a re­sult of the Crown Prince’s ac­ces­sion to the throne this year, the Golden Week hol­i­day pe­riod will last 10 days from April 27 to May 6, the long­est stretch of hol­i­days since the Na­tional Hol­i­days Law took ef­fect in 1948.

The com­mit­tee be­lieves that peo­ple who want to buy tick­ets will have plenty of time to ac­cess the in­ter­net dur­ing that pe­riod.
