    This is not exactly a 2019 tournament, but as ticket sales for seats at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will commence from spring 2019 (at least for residents in Japan), let me just share the following information.

    Official Tokyo 2020 Website
    Japanese: https://tokyo2020.org/jp/
    English: https://tokyo2020.org/en/

    Competition Schedule: July 25 – August 3, 2020 (https://tokyo2020.org/en/games/schedule/olympic/)
    Badminton Venue: Musashino Forest Sport Plaza (https://www.musamori-plaza.com/english/)

    Ticket Sales/Costs (Residents in Japan only):
    Ticket sales for the Olympics will commence in spring 2019, and will be decided through a draw. In order to be eligible to purchase a ticket online in 2019, residents in Japan MUST apply for a Tokyo 2020 ID at the official Japanese site above no later than March 31, 2019. According to current information, thereafter, tickets will only become available in 2020 at to-be-specified vendors in the Tokyo region.

    Ticket sales for the Paralympics are scheduled to commence in summer 2020.

    Ticket prices for purchases made in Japan (https://tokyo2020.org/jp/games/ticket/olympic/):

    Ticket Sales Outside Japan: Currently, only the following information is available on the English language site.
    The tickets for overseas will become available via National Olympic Committees (NOC) or authorized ticket resellers (ATR) of each country or territory. Please be ready for the information about the ATR and the tickets release dates which will be announced on our Tokyo 2020 website!

    I will not go there, too expensive, too hard to get tickets for foreign people and it will be very crowded in the city overall as it is a multisport event.

    There are two sessions on the day of the finals, 13:00-15:30 and 20:00-23:00. The ticket price could well be for one session only, but it won't be for one match, ... unless there is only one match per session.

    Actually, seeing that there are finals scheduled from July 31 to August 3, this could be the case. :eek:

    As that prices are actually "for purchases made in Japan", is there any possibility to have different price for foreign price?

    Compare to 2016 Rio and 2012 London, indeed the ticket prices are quite expensive.
    - 2016 Rio ---> https://www.olympic.org/news/rio-2016-announces-ticket-prices
    - 2012 London ---> http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/shared/bsp/hi/pdfs/15_10_10_athletics.pdf


    The interesting fact about 2020 Tokyo Olympic ticket prices:

    Tickets for many events start at the symbolic price point of 2,020 yen ($17.96) but these are only for group sales, while the cheapest individual tickets will go on sale for 2,500 yen ($22.23). More than half of all tickets will be sold for less than 8,000 yen ($71.15), according to organisers. [Source]

    1 match even for Final for 50-350€ is a bit too much :(
    I really want to go though still
    I assume the budget for 2 weeks around Tokyo would be around 2500-4000€. Any European here interested to go as well?

    Save some money and go to JPN for 2022 WC instead, that is my plan.

    Interesting idea if we only focus on Badminton. Thanks man
    Will try to go to Basel this year and see if it would be worth it to go to Tokyo in 2022

    Nice to see that Badminton has a page (https://olympics.bwfbadminton.com/) on the Tokyo 2020 website! And guess who the poster boy is! :)

    Incidentally, the Japan Sports Agency has announced that in the run up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, it will give priority funding to the twenty-three sports categories which it considers to be potential (multiple) medal winners. Of these, five categories have been given the top rank of "S", and ten categories an "A" rank.

    "S Rank" = 30% increase in annual funding → Karate, Judo, Gymnastics, Badminton, Wrestling
    "A Rank" = 20% increase in annual funding → Weightlifting, Swimming, Skateboarding, Sports Climbing, Sailing, Softball, Table Tennis, Tennis, Baseball, Track & Field

    Wow, Badminton is in the top 5, being ranked S. But, I am surprised about swimming, which is only rank A, considering the accomplishments.

    in the Olympics level, swimming is still pretty much dominated by US
    Japan even 'only' got 2 gold in Rio

    Ah, I see. But, everything can happen. If the swimmer superstar Rikako Ikee can reach her full health by the time of Olympics, she is the one to watch. I daresay that her star status is bigger than KM.

    Had Ikee Rikako not been diagnosed with leukaemia, then swimming would definitely be in the "S" zone. The Sports Agency is not under any delusions here; the possibility of Ikee recovering her strength in time is extremely slim.

    And yes, her status was far greater than Momota's, ... although that may change now.
