I am interested in the Tokyo Olympics.

I contacted CoSport and to go to the opening ceremony, basketball and soccer it would cost more than $10,000 not including airfare.

Is that very expensive? Anyone have any advice?

The opening ceremony and other big name events are going to be expensive. If you just want to be part of the bigger Olympic experience, start developing an interest in endurance sports (running, marathon, triathlon, and road cycling courses are long enough to find a free sport to watch), plan on seeing preliminary rounds or pool play, or schedule yourself for slightly less popular sports. Team handball can actually be fun to watch if you don't expect it to be basketball.

And all the recent Olympic Games have had problems selling out. Chances are that prices for lodging and such will fall a month or two before things start up.

I think Tokyo might be different as it is the Summer Games which are easier to watch. Its very hard to watch skiing if it is not on TV. The only sport it would be interesting to watch in Winter Games is short track, speed skating and hockey.

I think 2016 is a hard comparison as who wants to go to Rio and it seemed dangerous. I am not sure how 2012 in London sold, probably well. Paris will be expensive and LA as those are places that people want to go to.

I am trying to see if people are taking reservations.
