Summer Olympic Games 2020 Tickets, Trips and Experiences

Either the ticket prices are different in the US or you just have too much money ... :mumble:

In Germany you have to pay over 900 € for one single athletics/swimming session category A and for one single session category B you also have to pay more than 600 €.

For a single semifinals/finals session in fencing category A (2 semifinals and 2 finals per weapon) you have to pay more than 100 €.

For rowing and other less sports the prices are decent, but i hesitate to pay that much money for one single athletics/swimming session, especially Germany will only be represented in a fracture of the finals contested during that session.

Right now i think that i will try to get tickets for the opening ceremony, one swimming session, one athletics session, 1 or 2 rowing sessions, at least one track cycling session, one gymnastics session, one basketball session and maybe one archery/shooting session and/or one slalom canoeing session.

Well I’m staying for 10 days in Tokyo. We are using our flyer miles to make the flights essentially free. I made a habit of purchasing only nose bleed tickets (catagories C,D,E unless the lowest option was B), and we’re getting in shape so we can walk from venue to venue. 

I think I’ll be able to get 2 catagory E tickets to the women’s 100m final session for around $102. The most expensive tickets for me were rowing (on a day with finals/ and eights action). If everything goes to plan I should be able to see upwards of 10 gold medals awarded.

Well, Unless I’m reading CoSport’s website wrong. All of my ticket requests have been denied. I applied for 18 tickets to 9 event sessions on 9 separate days. Apparently the ticket shortage is so bad in the US that 100,000s of people may have been denied Olympics tickets. It’s apparently just as bad in Australia and Japan, and I would imagine that it’s the same for most major countries. At this point I’m hoping it’s just a glitch in the website, but it doesn’t look good...

It was a system glitch. The ticket draw for the US will take place on Saturday.
