All the venues for the Tokyo Olympics of 2020 approved!

The Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games announced that the International Olympic Committee Executive Board has approved the final venue plan for football events. With the achievement of this milestone, all of the venues for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 have now been finalised.

The Tokyo 2020 Games will use a total of 43 venues, including 25 existing, ten temporary and eight new permanent venues. Following a number of reviews with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, the IOC, International Federations and other related parties, the planned construction of three new permanent venues was cancelled, resulting in the percentage of venues utilising existing facilities rising from around 40 per cent to almost 60 per cent, with an accompanying reduction of more than 200 billion yen in costs.
