This is the only location still to be decided as a Four Party Working Group containing councils from the IOC, Tokyo Olympic and both the Central and City Governments continue their negotiations.
“As part of the Four Party Working Group’s on-going fact-finding, a group from the IOC administration paid a technical visit to Yokohama Arena today,” an IOC spokesperson told inside the games.
They were at pains to point out that the visit was an administrative and technical one rather than an official Direction Commission review. The substitute aquatics center and a rowing and canoe sprint venue 400 kilometers away at Tome in Miyagi Prefecture were each disqualified in courtesy of downscaled types of current plans for new venues – the Olympic Aquatics Ground and Sea Forest course.
The Yokohama Stadium is a well-known concert venue that played host to the 2009 World Table Tennis Championships. It was used as an alternative shelter after the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and resulting tsunami. The shift to a current location would cut costs, it would also add further overlay fees as well as logistical pressures from holding another sport outside the capital city.
The Yokohama plan looks to have been viewed skeptically at the Working Group meeting by Organizing Committee top brass, who called for a decision to be made quickly. IOC executive director of the Olympic Games Christophe Dubi also admitted that the Yokohama plan was ambitious and would require huge work.
“It is easy to gather reasons why we cannot hold events somewhere, but I want to continue pursuing reasons why we can,” Koike said after the meeting.
Twelve topics were deliberated today, meanwhile, as the two-day Coordination Commission inspection began here. This elaborate key learning from Rio 2016 as well as people management, communications, appointment and action and legacy, sustainability and brand, identity and look. Also deliberated was the marketable programmed as well as ticketing and hospitality, spectator experience, finance and budget, co-host cities position and locating and tendering processes.
Inside the games understands this included a study of the Rio 2016 ticketing system at which Tokyo drew-up plans for ensuring no empty seats in venues as well as shorter queues for entry and for food and drink.
