“The Olympic Games is such an event that encapsulates the whole world’s attention to the hosting country and  both athletes and fans desires to be part of it at least once in their lifetime,’ emphasizes LNOC President and IOC Member Daina Gudzinevičiūtė  - a participant of five Olympic Games and Olympic champion. “We have chosen a tried-and-tested partner AB “Novaturas” in order secure smooth travelling process to and from the capital of Japan”.

“Strictly regulated rules allow us selling tickets only for a fixed price and only to the residents of the Republic of Lithuania, i.e. persons with registered residence address in Lithuania. There are cases where attempts are made to purchase tickets or tickets are offered for sale by other means. We recommend people to be very considerate as the ticket sales rules are strict and their breach may result in fines,’ says the CEO of Novaturas.

The Olympic Games will host the representatives of 33 different sports competing for 339 medal sets.
