Olympic Games

    Tokyo 2020

    The Games of the XXXII Olympiad, Tokyo 2020, is scheduled to be held from 23 July to 8 August 2021.

    Tokyo won the right to host the 2020 Olympic Games at the International Olympic Committee's 125th Session in Buenos Aires in 2013, the Japanese city's bid beating the other two candidates of Istanbul and Madrid.

    It is the second time that Tokyo gets to host the Olympic Games, after 1964 when volleyball was introduced to the Olympic Program for the first time.
