Paralympics organisers confirm no fans will be allowed at Tokyo Games
Much like at the recent Oympic Games, there will be no fans in attendance for the Paralympics in Tokyo.
The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has confirmed no spectators will be allowed to attend events at the upcoming Games in Tokyo.
Japan is still in a state of emergency as it battles with a spike in coronavirus cases and the recent Olympic Games were held mostly behind closed doors as a result.
The IPC, along with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG), and the Government of Japan, held a remote meeting on Monday to determine if spectators would be allowed to attend.
"We very much regret that this situation has impacted the Paralympic Games," the Games' organisers said in a statement.
"We sincerely apologise to all ticket buyers who were looking forward to watching the Games at the venues.
"We hope that you understand that these measures are unavoidable and being implemented in order to prevent the spread of infection. Everyone is encouraged to watch the Games at home."
