    Tokyo Olympic Tickets thread

    This was very good advice, it is definitely something I'm going to think long and hard about. I really really really want to go, and I have the money for it, so I may be ready to take that leap of faith. Any advice on how to start trying to find those tickets though other than just checking CoSport on and off, day in and day out? I tried to find some hockey tickets last night, but they were also sold. Football will be nice too - the US Women's team will certainly be there, but the men are making a good push as well to go. I would certainly love to go to as many events as possible. However, you made a good point about "Olympic Spirit". It would be so nice to meet other fans from around the globe at different Fan Zones, and maybe even do some pin exchanging. that's something I hadn't thought much about. Plus, I've never even been to Japan, so I would want to do some sightseeing as well. So I would be okay (elated actually) if I went, saw some events, hopefully most involving Team USA, and still got to experience that Olympic Spirit and what Tokyo has to offer.

    Tokyo Olympic Tickets thread

    While I am an Olympic nerd, I am trying to go to Tokyo 2020, which will be my first ever Olympics. I put in an order request through CoSport (American) and naturally didn't get it, and the sports are still all sold out. But after reading through this thread, I'm getting the impression that some tickets may open up later? And that I shouldn't be too concerned about landing tickets? Or should I take the post a few above mine as completely serious, with me being "doomed"? Also, if you do say I have a chance of landing tickets. what do I do in regards to accommodations and flights? Should I start trying to book a place to stay now, and flights in 3-5 months, and just chance the tickets? Or should I wait until I've secured some tickets to book accommodations? Would any of your recommend booking refundable accommodations in this case? Sorry for so many questions, again, this would be my first ever Olympics ... I'm really interested in the Opening Ceremony, Basketball, and both gendered Volleyball, Hockey, Football (Soccer), Swimming, and Beach Volleyball, Men's Handball, and Women's Gymnastics. If I can get a few tickets to any of those events, I would be elated

    United States 2026/2030

    Didn't Norway also claim they would try for 2030, because 226 didn't give them enough time to garner political support? But even so, in the case that Sapporo is interested in 2030, you're actually supporting Quaker's claim more in that SLC can step in and cover 2026 should the IOC be left with absolutely no options, and then cities like Sapporo, Oslo/Lillehammer, and whoever else can actually bid for 2030. Not half-cracked logic. Keeps host interested and a stable bid process, and gets the IOC that desired North American or Western Europe host for at least 2026, but maybe even 2030 as well.

    Regardless of the issues the two of you have, he has a valid point LOL. He seems to be thinking the USOC is lined up to pull an Innsbruck when Denver dropped out three years before, expect with much more planning. (at most 11 years, but ready whenever needed). Which, could be very smart, because it may send a message like "if this city can do it on such little notice and still not spend so much, there's no reason why *insert winter sports city/region* can't also host. I actually never considered it like that to tell you the honest truth.

    Maybe I should've done more reading before I asked the question, obviously I missed some backstory here ...

    Even though I did not tag you directly, thanks for sharing. I too am smelling a double-award on the horizon, I agree with you in that the USOC wouldn't be worrying this early about a 2030 bid, especially when they already have a full-on Olympics to plan, if they weren't expecting to find out about hosting 2030 next year. I also think they are putting some sort of trust in SLC about erasing some of the bad press, which is understandable. Look, we agree!

    Quaker started the thread a long time ago, and resurfaced it with this article, hence why I tagged him directly ... Do I need to call you out directly so you feel included? I'm aware of his opinion, I wanted to know if it had changed given the new circumstances. And, if it was the same, I wanted to hear why. Just getting discussion rolling, hence the point of this thread, and forum entirely.

    Quaker, what do you thinks the odds are that we'll see a double award of Milan or Stockholm for 2026, and then Salt Lake or Denver for 2030? Do you think it's best in the IOCs interest to decide in 2019 their plans through 2030?

    Did you just try to correct/one-up my statement by reiterating it?

    Always a good laugh from you, Quaker

    Certainly not what anyone wants to be hearing right about now. The BidWeek article may have gotten it correct: The IOC must change everything.

    The Milan Cortina Italy thread

    If we took a shot each time a potential 2026 host city said "referendum", we would be drunk until 2026.
