Tokyo 2020 - House of Switzerland
July 23rd to September 5th, 2021
Cancellation of the House of Switzerland at the Olympic Games in Tokyo
The current health measures in Japan and the travel restrictions during the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo have compelled the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) to cancel the presence of the House of Switzerland in Tokyo this summer.
Federal Councillor Ignazio Cassis, the head of the FDFA, informed the Federal Council at its meeting on 28 April of his decision to cancel the House of Switzerland's Tokyo appearance, scheduled from 24 July to 5 September 2021. Following the postponement of the Olympic Games from 2020 to 2021, the Federal Council had decided to realise the initial 2020 project in 2021. At present, neither the health measures nor the restrictions decided by the Japanese government and the organisers allow for the presence of a House of Switzerland during these games.
We would have loved to welcome you all at the House of Switzerland in Tokyo this summer and hope to come together and cheer on our Swiss Athletes with you soon again!
