10,000 fans for games events, unless virus situation worsens五輪観客上限は1万人と正式発表

After a lengthy period of indecision, organizers announced June 21 that spectators during the Tokyo Olympic Games will be limited to 10,000 fans per venue — unless the coronavirus situation worsens around the start of the Olympics on July 23.

The announcement came after months of back and forth between organizers, officials, experts and the public over the scale and scope of the once-postponed global sporting event.

Following a five-way meeting between representatives of the central government, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, the Tokyo Organising Committee, the International Olympic Committee and the International Paralympic Committee, Tokyo Games minister Tamayo Marukawa announced that attendance during the games will be capped at 10,000 per venue or 50% of the venue capacity — whichever figure is lower — and up to 20,000 will be allowed to attend the July 23 opening ceremony.

“As the spectator cap has been decided, we have collected the last piece (of the puzzle). I think the framework of the stage has been completed,” Seiko Hashimoto, president of the Tokyo Organising Committee, said in a news conference after the online meeting.

While the decision is in line with the government’s policy for large events, organizers said they will consider the possibility of holding the Olympics without spectators if the infection situation worsens before or after the event begins. (The Japan Times, Kyodo)
