TOKYO: About 18% of tickets sold in Japan for the Tokyo Olympics have been refunded, the organizing committee said on Thursday.
Ticket holders in Japan were allowed a refund as the game was postponed for a year due to the novel outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic.
Approximately 810,000 tickets have been requested for refund, out of a total of 4.45 million initially sold during the domestic lottery, organizers said in a press release.
Ticket holders were able to submit refund applications in November, and refunds will begin to be made later this month.
“Although we are planning to resell the refunded tickets, we are yet to determine how and when they will be resold,” the organizers said.
Tickets already purchased for the Tokyo Olympics, which will take place next year, will remain valid for reset events.
Organizers have not yet said whether the venue will be allowed for spectators at the Games and said the decision will be made “in spring.”
