Inside the Games has reported that a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed by the British Olympic Association (BOA) and the Japanese Olympic Committee (JOC), which will allow Team GB to use Japanese sports facilities during the build-up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

The agreement was also signed by the Yokahama and Kawasaki City Governments, as well as Keio University, and covers the provision of and access to facilities for the BOA.

Following the MoU, the BOA will be able to use facilities at Keio Hiyoshi Campus and Todoroki Stadium, as well as the Yokohama International Swimming Pool, for their pre-Games training.

Sebastien Coe, BOA President, said:

We are pleased that we have been able to partner with two great cities in Yokohama and Kawasaki, which will provide Team GB athletes with outstanding sporting facilities at Keio University, the International Swimming Pool and Todoroki Stadium.

We look forward to building further collaboration using sport as the instrument for positive social change.

Japan has made an immeasurable contribution to the Olympic Movement.

Tokyo 1964, Sapporo 1972 and Nagano 1998 provided the stage for some of the most memorable Olympic moments.

Tokyo 2020 will continue that rich history and will be a showcase to the world of iconic sport and culture.

The MoU was signed at the Ajinomoto National Training Centre, a state-of-the-art training facility used by Japan’s top athletes.

Coe, who is also President of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), was joined by JOC President Tsnuekazu Takeda to confirm the agreement.

Takeda said:

I am very delighted to celebrate the signing of the MoU among the parties, the British Olympic Association, Yokohama City, Kawasaki City and the Japanese Olympic Committee in terms of the BOA training camp for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

We believe that the usage of the facilities of Yokohama City, Kawasaki City and Keio University by Team GB during the training camp will make it possible to create exchanges with the citizens and young people of both cities and university students.

In addition, we strongly feel that this MoU will further deepen the cordial relationship between the BOA and the JOC.

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will take place from July 24 to August 9.
