Ticket Designs for Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Unveiled
The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020) today unveiled the designs of the tickets for the Tokyo 2020 Games at an event joined by Paralympian guests from home and abroad.
A total of 59 Olympic tickets and 25 Paralympic ticket designs for all competition events were unveiled. Expected to be delivered in May, each ticket features a sport pictogram that corresponds to the specific discipline, a venue pictogram, the Tokyo 2020 Games emblem, and is colour-coded according to the venue and the city hosting the event. The designs of the tickets for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies will be published at a later date.
The design of the tickets is based on the look of the Games, the visual identity of the Olympic and Paralympic 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 used for kimonos during the Heian Period (794-1185). Having been traditionally used in the design of costumes for celebratory occasions, the colour scheme reflects the overlapping natural colours representative of each of Japan’s four seasons.
