The XVI. Summer Paralympic Games ( Japanese 東京 2020 パ ラ リ ン ピ ッ ク 競技 大会) were held in Tokyo from August 24 to September 5, 2021 . Originally, the games were supposed to take place from August 25th to September 6th, 2020. After the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic , the Summer Olympics and therefore also the Paralympics were postponed to August 24 to September 5, 2021. Due to the pandemic, the Paralympics, like the Olympic Games a few days earlier, were mostly held without spectators.
The Japanese capital was commissioned with the organization on September 7, 2013 during the 125th session of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in Buenos Aires . The contract between the host countries and the IOC states that the Paralympics will use the same venue as the Olympic Games .
