International Paralympic Committee (IPC) president Andrew Parsons has stated organisers of the 2020 summer Paralympic Games have received “unprecedented” demand for tickets, adding that applications for Tokyo’s event already exceed the record number sold for London 2012’s Paralympics.

London 2012 sold 2.7 million tickets, but Parsons said Tokyo 2020 has already received 3.1 million applications for the 2.3 million tickets available, with an initial 600,000 allocated during the first lottery process.
