Archery 101: Venue

Posted at 11:19 AM, Mar 10, 2021

Archery at the Tokyo Olympics will be held at the Yumenoshima Park Archery Field, which has a capacity of 5,600.

The site originated from an improved landfill site known as Yumenoshima (meaning "Dream Island") in the Koto Ward of Tokyo. Unlike the iconic archery venues in London (Lord's Cricket Ground) and Rio (Sambodromo), Japan's competition site is newly designed specifically for the Games. The first time it was used by athletes was at the Ready Steady Tokyo test event in July 2019. 

The field used for the ranking round will be used as a permanent archery field following the Games. The finals area, stands, and office buildings are temporary.
