Edited - was complaining about CoSport not having Paralympic tickets in Australia - it's Kingdom Sports selling them apparently.

Move along. Nothing to see here.

Luxury packages for 2020 Games will be sold through a lottery

Well-heeled fans willing to pay high prices for seats at the most popular events at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics will now need luck to punch their tickets.

The Tokyo Organizing Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games announced on Oct. 9 that it will sell official hospitality packages priced at a maximum 6.35 million yen ($59,000) through a lottery system.

The committee initially planned to offer the packages on a first-come, first-served basis.

“We have received more inquiries than we expected. We underestimated the popularity,” said a committee official.

The highest-priced packages offer amenities such as private suites, gourmet dining and fine wines to the most sought-after events.

Buyers of the 6.35-million-yen package can watch the opening and closing ceremonies and competitions such as the men’s 100-meter final at the New National Stadium in central Tokyo over 11 days. Others on offer include a 1.8-million-yen package for the opening and closing ceremonies.

The organizers plan to sell 191 kinds of packages, which include one or combinations of the following events: the opening and closing ceremonies and 16 events at a total of 15 venues.

They expect the number of tickets sold through the hospitality packages to reach about 1 percent of 7.8 million, the number of regular tickets to be available estimated at the time of Tokyo's successful bid to host the 2020 Games.

The deadline for applications to buy the tickets is Oct. 12. Applicants can enter the lottery for the packages at the website: (https://officialhospitality.tokyo2020.org/)

I've had a look - not a great deal to get excited about.  I find it hard to believe the only football tickets available are to the semifinals and are $500 a pop.  So every other single match all across Japan are sold out? That'll be a first...

Tokyo 2020 organizers reveal that 6,900 tickets were bought with fake IDs

Organizers for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics said Friday that about 6,900 tickets sold in the first phase of a domestic lottery in May were bought with fake IDs.

Organizers revealed that some 30,000 of the official IDs required to make a ticket application were created with fake personal information, with 1,200 of those winning the rights to buy tickets for the games, which will take place next year from July 24 to Aug. 9.

The total value of the tickets was about ¥180 million. The tickets will be invalidated with no refunds offered due to being fraudulently purchased.

Organizers believe a specific group orchestrated a plan to create fake IDs in order to secure tickets. They have already consulted with the Metropolitan Police Department. Organizers declined to discuss further details.

Japan residents who want to buy 2020 tickets are first required to register for an official Olympic ID with a name and address. Over 7.7 million had registered as of Friday.

Roughly 3.2 million tickets were sold in the first phase.

An additional ticket lottery closed in August for some 4.16 million residents who came up empty-handed in the initial draw, with about 120,000 winners out of the more than 1.4 million applicants buying around 350,000 of the over 680,000 tickets available so far.

Tokyo Olympics: Organizers to launch 2nd domestic ticket lottery on Nov. 13

The organizing committee of next summer's Tokyo Games announced Friday that the second phase of the Olympic ticket lottery will be opened to residents of Japan in the early morning on Wednesday.

Over a million tickets are being offered for nearly all the Olympic events, including the opening and closing ceremonies. Applications will be accepted on the official ticketing website until 11:59 a.m. on Nov. 26.

The men's and women's marathons will be excluded from the lottery as organizers are leaning toward not setting up spectator seating following the decision to move the races to Sapporo in the northernmost main island of Hokkaido amid concerns about heat in Japan's capital.

Tickets for boxing, which had been previously been omitted due to issues with the International Boxing Association, will be on sale for the first time.

The results of the lottery will be announced Dec. 18, and winners will have until Jan. 10 to complete their transaction.

The organizers have decreased the number of tickets a single person can win to 18 from the 30 allowed in the first phase held earlier in the year in hopes more people can purchase the tickets.

Tickets for triathlon, marathon swimming and the cross country segment of the equestrian eventing competition will not be sold, because organizers are looking to change the starting times of the competitions in response to the heat.

The first phase of the Olympic ticket lottery was held in May and saw heavy traffic disrupt the official ticketing website. A second-chance window was offered in August for applicants who were unsuccessful in the initial draw.

The organizers had initially planned to begin the second phase of the lottery on Oct. 24 but postponed it, saying at the time "the coordination among concerned parties has not concluded."

Being Dutch, get some tickets for women's football! You have one of the best players in the world right now, Miedema, and the best part is, she's very young. She also deserved top 3 in the Balloon d'Or over Alex Morgan (and I'm American). If you haven't already, they'll be a great team to watch! Hell, I want to see them very badly :) I'm hoping Team GB gets a higher FIFA ranking than the Netherlands so there's a chance the USA and the Dutch will be drawn together in the group stages!

Although it would seem a mere formality, USA women still have to qualify for Tokyo. And the way the qualifying is set-up, assuming they are first or second in their group, the two CONCACAF Olympic spots comes down to one must-win match in the semi-finals that takes place on Feb.7.

Big ticket dump from CoSport last Thursday.  It was the first time I saw Swimming finals and even Closing Ceremony tickets for sale.  We're at the time when some of the tougher tickets become available.  I think any subsequent CoSport sales, at least up to the time when the Tokyo open sale begins, will be more like this.  I was able to get the Diving and Equestrian tickets I wanted, and fill out my Track (Athletics) tickets.  I'm pretty much done now, except for one real longshot ticket I'd love to get.
