Games of the 32nd Olympiad, to be held in Tokyo, Japan
The 2020 Summer Olympics , officially the Games of the XXXII Olympiad , and also known as Tokyo 2020 , is an upcoming international multi-sport event scheduled to be held from 23 July to 8 August 2021 in Tokyo, Japan. Originally due to take place from 24 July to 9 August 2020, the event was postponed in March 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite being rescheduled for 2021, the Games have retained the "Tokyo 2020" name for marketing and branding purposes. This marks the first time that the Olympic Games have been postponed rather than cancelled.
