Olympic & Paralympic Tickets Designs Revealed

Tokyo 2020 have revealed the ticket designs for this year's Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Organizers said the designs are based on the "look" of the Games and the "visual identity" of Tokyo 2020.

There are 59 designs for Olympic tickets and 25 for the Paralympics, with those who have secured seats set to receive them from May.

All of the tickets feature a sport pictogram, a venue pictogram and the Tokyo 2020 Logo.

They are color-coded according to the venue and area hosting the event.

According to Tokyo 2020, the tickets have been inspired by the three types of rectangle used in the Games emblems.

Inspiration has also been taken from the Japanese technique "kasane no irome", a color scheme used in the creation of fabrics for kimonos.

Four "traditional Japanese" colors have been used which are said to reflect the four seasons.

Red, or kurenai, is often used during celebrations while blue, or ai, has been picked as it is "globally known" as a color representing Japan.

Blue is also the prominent color of the Tokyo 2020 logos.

Purple, or Fuji, is the color of Japanese wisteria, regarded as a "beautiful Japanese flower".

A pine needle shade of green, or matsuba, is another color which is used in celebrations.

"We are very proud of the design of the Tokyo 2020 Tickets, embodying as it does Japanese traditions and skills, and we hope they will please both Japanese and international spectators at the Tokyo 2020 Games," said Tokyo 2020 spokesperson Masa Takaya.
