The Paralympics ended on the 5th, and the Tokyo tournament was over.
Of the six facilities newly constructed by the city for the Olympics and Paralympics, most of them are expected to have an annual income and expenditure deficit at this point, and the city wants to utilize them by increasing the use of the facilities, but it is negative. The challenge is to increase profitability so that it does not become a legacy.
As the venue for the tournament, the capital has newly constructed six facilities at a cost of approximately 137.5 billion yen.
In the future, we plan to make it a base for sports, but in the annual income and expenditure outlook announced by the city four years ago, only "Ariake Arena" is in the black, and the other five are in the red, and the total amount is about 1 billion a year. It is expected to be 85 million yen.
The city wants to utilize it by increasing the usage by devising the private business operator who operates the facility, but if the infection of the new coronavirus continues to spread, the usage may be sluggish.
In addition to the prolongation of corona measures, there are concerns that the financial burden on the city will increase further due to the decrease in ticket revenue due to the holding of the tournament without spectators. The issue is whether it can be enhanced.
It is the future plan and income and expenditure outlook of the six facilities developed by the city.
Most of the facilities will be re-used after the temporary removal work for the tournament has been completed.
Of the six facilities, the only one that is expected to be in the black is the Ariake Arena in Koto Ward, which was the venue for volleyball and wheelchair basketball.
As a new base for sports and culture in Tokyo, events such as international sports competitions and concerts are scheduled to be held from around next summer.
The annual income and expenditure outlook is a surplus of 356 million yen.
Meanwhile, the remaining five facilities are all expected to be in the red.

The "Tokyo Aquatics Center" in Koto Ward, which was the venue for swimming races, is equipped with a 50-meter pool, a diving platform, and a large-scale vision.
From around the spring of next year, we are considering holding 100 athlete competitions a year and holding swimming classes for children and the elderly.
The annual deficit is expected to be 638 million yen.
