It is possible that tickets sold on unofficial channels such as auction websites may be invalid or counterfeit tickets. The Terms and Conditions for the Purchase and Use of Tokyo 2020 Tickets specifies that entry to venues will be denied to individuals in possession of a ticket purchased from unofficial channels. Please take the utmost caution to ensure that you do not fall victim to illegal ticket reselling, acts of fraud, etc.

Invalid and/or counterfeit tickets may be put on sale on auction websites and other unofficial channels. Individuals attempting to enter the Games competition venues with a ticket purchased from unofficial sales channels will be denied entry.
