July 23, 2021 - August 8, 2021 - The 2020 summer Olympic Games, the Games of the XXXII Olympiad, take place in Tokyo, Japan.

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games feature 339 events in 33 different sports, encompassing 50 disciplines.

Baseball and Softball are two of six new events debuting at the Tokyo Olympics, although strictly speaking they are returning after a 13 year hiatus – last appearing at the Beijing Games in 2008.

It is the second time that Japan, and specifically Tokyo, has hosted the Summer Olympic Games – the first being in 1964.
