Tokyo Olympic Tickets thread in Tokyo 2020 Tickets, Travel and Accommodation Posted August 15, 2019 · Report reply Other sources? For a couple recent Olympics somebody has appointed themselves a ticket guru on Twitter, made it a full time hobby to track ticket availability and tweet stuff out. This is especially helpful for people who live in EU countries and often can buy from many countries. I first heard of such people here on gamesbids. Somebody above mentioned reddit... I wouldn't be surprised if there was info there. Personally, I don't bother with other sources (out of laziness and a lack of internet hipness) ... I just check the cosport website almost every day. Takes about 15 seconds. Right before the games I might check out Ebay or Craigslist... but keep in mind there is a lot of ticket fraud out there. I'd only consider buying there under the absolute safest of terms. For team sports, most of the time you buy a ticket for "Match G" and you won't know which of the teams is playing until long after you've bought your ticket. You can sometimes make reasonable assumption to narrow things down (US teams tend to be scheduled on times that are good for NBC) and if you buy the gold medal women's basketball match, you're probably going to see Team USA. The one exception is football - especially women's football. You should be safe waiting until the draws are announced and be able to get tickets through the official Japanese site for any Team USA matches. Keep in mind that many of the matches are outside of Tokyo... which could even be a benefit from a tourist standpoint.
