The Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee has received applications from 26 IOC-recognised International Federations (IFs), including WSF, proposing events to be considered for inclusion at Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020.
The Tokyo 2020 Additional Event Programme Panel will now examine each application and a shortlist will be announced on 22 June 2015. The second phase of the application process will then commence.
Phase II will include the submission of further details from the shortlisted IFs and a presentation to the Additional Event Programme Panel will take place in Tokyo.
The Additional Event Programme Panel will propose its recommendations to the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee, which will make a final decision on the successful event(s) to be proposed to the IOC.
The final decision, in line with the Olympic Charter, will be made by the 129th IOC Session in Rio in August 2016.
