When is the Olympics opening ceremony?
The Summer Olympic Games officially begin on July 24, 2021.
The Olympic opening ceremony, which will take place at the New National Stadium in Tokyo, is expected to be a huge event, so remember to check start times with your broadcaster(s) of choice and tune in.
ARE FANS ALLOWED INTO THE OLYMPICS OPENING CEREMONY AT TOKYO 2020?
At this stage, it appears that fans will be allowed at the Opening Ceremony.
Due to the virus, crowds will be capped at either 50 per-cent or a maximum of 10,000 people for the entire Tokyo Games across all events – but it will be much smaller for the Opening Ceremony.
The stadium holds up to 80,000 people, but it will only be able to hold the maximum of 10,000.
Compared to other Olympics, it’s going to look seriously empty.
WHO IS PERFORMING AT THE OLYMPICS OPENING CEREMONY?
As with all other Olympic Games, there will be a ‘parade of nations’ and the passing of the flame.
There will also be an exhibition flight from Blue Impulse, the aerobatics squadron of the Japanese Air Self Defense Force.
