The Oi Hockey Stadium is due to open its doors to members of the public from tomorrow, with the Kasai Canoe Slalom Centre following on October 1. The public is set to be granted access to the Tokyo Aquatics Centre for experiences and tours from October 30.
Sports federations will be able to use the center from October 25, the day after the planned grand Opening Ceremony of the venue. Tokyo Olympic has warned the public use of the venues “may be suspended in the future” depending on the COVID-19 pandemic. Infection control measures will be in place, while organizers have said restrictions on the number of entrants may need to be implemented in response to the coronavirus crisis.
“The venues will be open to the public to the extent that public usage does not interfere with the delivery of and preparations for the Games,” Tokyo Olympic supposed in a statement.
Venues will open for public use successively, once discussions with the relevant organizations have decided and safety measures for temporary overlays have been implemented. Other venues to have been opened for the public in recent months include the Sea Forest Waterway and the Yumenoshima Park Archery Field.
The Sea Forest Waterway, the venue for rowing at the Games, had been opened for use by sports federations from August 22 and for use by “non-sports-related groups” from September 7.
