Tokyo 2020 will be held next year

Despite setting a four-week deadline to deliberate on the fate of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games on Sunday, Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe and International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach have just announced their agreement to push the event to the summer of 2021.

The event will also get to retain its name, Tokyo 2020.

Earlier today, outbound agents told TTG Asia that they hoped for a quicker, clearer decision on the fate of the Games so as to facilitate ticket refunds, where needed, or rearrangements of travel programmes that were crafted and booked in better times.

To be held in 2021, the Games will continue to bear the Tokyo 2020 name

Tokyo 2020 was scheduled to open on July 24 this year, and run till August 9.
