July 2020 Tournament Scheduled July 19 through August 2
The July 2020 Grand Sumo Tournament is scheduled to be held July 19 through August 2. The Japan Sumo Association has moved the location to the Kokugikan in Tokyo in order to minimize travel and lodging risks due to the virus. And like the March tournament there will be no in-stadium spectators. Though an odd arrangement at first appearance, an online viewer has the benefit of being able to hear a lot more sounds typically masked by the crowd noise. We hope they can conduct the tournament and do so relatively safely.
