Tokyo 2020, the Japanese capital’s bid to host the Olympic Games in that year, has claimed that all participating international federations have accepted its sports venue plans for 28 Olympic and 16 Paralympic summer sports.
The bid committee said it had been in close dialogue with the IFs since being named as a 2020 candidate city in May, along with Madrid and Istanbul, noting that those conversations had "directly influenced content and improvements to Tokyo's bid."
It said the promise to bring "every international federation into the heart of the city, offering great exposure and the best games experience possible for athletes, Olympic and Paralympic Families, and spectators alike" will be evident in the candidature file, due to be submitted to the International Olympic Committee by January 7, 2013.
Tsunekazu Takeda, president of both the Japanese Olympic Committee and Tokyo 2020, said: "I would like to personally thank all international federations for their cooperation. Our plan is the result of Tokyo 2020's will to place the needs of sport and athletes firmly in the centre of the Games. The approvals from all international federations for both the Olympic and Paralympic Games prove Tokyo's outstanding capacity."
Yuko Arakida, sports director of Tokyo 2020, added: "The close working relationships between the international federations, the national federations and our bid team have enabled a smooth and quick process.
"We're very grateful to the international federations for their participation leading to these sign offs, and are pleased to have developed an athlete-focused plan that suits their needs - and we are sure that Tokyo will provide excellent exposure for all sports."
The IOC will select the host city for the 2020 Olympics at its session in Buenos Aires, Argentina on September 7, 2013.
