Applicants who came up empty-handed in the first domestic lottery for 2020 Olympic tickets can register for a second-chance draw starting on Aug. 8, the local organizing committee said Tuesday.

The new lottery, which will be open to some 4.16 million residents of Japan who were unsuccessful in the initial draw, will offer around 680,000 tickets for 20 of the 33 sports to be staged during the Tokyo Olympics.
