The Tokyo 2020 Additional Event Programme Panel will continue working to identify one or more additional events to be proposed by Tokyo 2020 to the IOC, based on the following key principles:
 ・The additional event(s) will serve as a driving force to promote
  the Olympic Movement and its values, with a focus on youth appeal
 ・The additional event(s) will add value to the Games by engaging
  the Japanese population and new audiences worldwide, reflecting
  the Tokyo 2020 Games vision
 ・The selection procedure will be open and fair

Successful applicants are now invited to participate in Phase II, which will include the submission of further details from the shortlisted IFs by 22 July 2015, and IF Briefings to Tokyo 2020 that will take place in Tokyo on 7-8 August 2015.

The Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee will make a decision on the event(s) to be proposed to the IOC in September 2015. The final decision, in line with the Olympic Charter, will be made at the 129th IOC Session in Rio in August 2016.
