#1YearToGo to Tokyo 2020 in 2021
One year from now, we hope to come together in Tokyo, Japan, to celebrate the Games of the 32nd Olympiad.
The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in 2021 are due to officially open on 23 July 2021 with the Opening Ceremony at Tokyo's new National Stadium. International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach has said the Games "can be a light at the end of this very dark tunnel that humankind is going through at the moment."
