 IOC will adjust the entry sequence of the Olympic Games to highlight future hosts


In accordance with the usual practice, the host delegation will come out at the end of each Olympic Games. According to the latest decision of the International Olympic Committee, the delegations of countries or regions that have won the right to host the future Olympic Games will be present before the current host to highlight the special status of the future host.

This means that at the opening ceremony of next years Tokyo Olympic Games, the last three delegations will be the United States (Los Angeles Olympics 2028), France (Paris Olympics 2024) and Japan. This practice will also be used in the future summer and Winter Olympics (the Winter Olympics and the Summer Olympics will be implemented separately).

In addition, at the opening ceremony of the Rio Olympic Games, the first refugee delegation in the history of the Olympic Games ranked the penultimate before the host country Brazil. At the Tokyo Olympics, the order of the refugee delegations will be greatly advanced, and they will be the second to enter the stadium after Greece, the birthplace of the Olympic movement.
