Tokyo, Oct. 24 (Jiji Press)--The Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games’ organizing committee plans to begin accepting requests for ticket refunds from November, it was learned Saturday.

Refunds are expected to become available from November for Olympics tickets and from December for Paralympics tickets, according to informed sources.

Some 4.48 million and 970,000 tickets have been sold for the Olympics and Paralympics, respectively.

The Tokyo Summer Games have been postponed by one year to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
