Each ticket features a sports pictogram that corresponds to the specific discipline, a venue pictogram and the Tokyo 2020 Games emblem, and is colour-coded according to the venue and the city hosting the ticketed event.
A total of 59 Olympic ticket designs for all competition events were unveiled. Delivery of the tickets will start in May.
The design is based on the Look of the Games, the visual identity of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. It is inspired by the three types of rectangular shapes that form the Tokyo 2020 emblems and the Japanese technique known as kasane no irome, a colour scheme used in the creation of fabrics for kimonos during the Heian Period (794-1185). Having been traditionally used in the design of costumes for celebratory occasions, this colour scheme reflects the overlapping natural colours representative of each of Japan’s four seasons.
The designs of the tickets use four traditional Japanese colours: Kurenai (red), Ai (blue) , Fuji (purple) , Matsuba (green)
