The 2020 Summer Paralympics will be held in Tokyo, Japan between 24 August and 5 September 2021.

Originally scheduled to take place between 25 August and 6 September 2020, both the Olympics and Paralympics were postponed to 2021 in March 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The events will be held largely behind closed doors with no public spectators permitted due to a state of emergency in the Tokyo region.

These Games will see the introduction of badminton and taekwondo to the Paralympic programme, replacing sailing and 7-a-side football.

Channel 4 will be the main broadcaster of the Paralympics in the UK with over 300 hours around the clock coverage on linear TV on Channel 4 and More 4.
