Residents of Japan will be able to apply for tickets for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games from May 9, the organizing committee said on Thursday.

Residents will be able to apply through the lottery system, which runs from May 9-28, before finding out if their application was successful on June 20.

All of those who live outside of Japan will not be able to apply through the system but will instead have to buy tickets through country-specific Authorized Ticket Resellers (ATRs).

The new website lists prices for the record 339 events in 33 sports – ranging from the cheapest general tickets at ¥2 500 ($22 / R310) to an eye-watering ¥300 000 (R37 200) for the best seats at the opening ceremony.

The distribution system varies from country to country but international sales cannot start until June 15. Each National Olympic Committee (NOC) has been allocated a certain number of tickets to be sold through their approved ATR.

Tokyo 2020 organizers refused to say how many tickets had been allocated to each NOC as well as how much commission ATRs would charge international customers.

Between 70-80 percent of all tickets have been reserved for domestic sales, with the remainder allocated to international customers and sponsors.

This marks only the first wave of ticket sales for the summer showpiece, which begins on July 24, 2020. There will be a further opportunity to purchase tickets in a first-come, first-served process later this year.
