Bringing the thrill and excitement of Team USA at the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 into the homes of millions of Americans and supporting Team USA is one of our greatest honors. Every two years, our company proudly comes together to provide unparalleled access to all 7,000 hours of NBCUniversal’s network and streaming coverage with more ways to personalize and discover the Games than ever before.
We’re also bringing the experience even closer to home in Colorado Springs this year during the Downtown Celebration – Tokyo on July 31.
The Downtown Celebration – Tokyo is a continuation of a biennial celebration organized by the Colorado Springs Sports Corporation that began in 2012 with the Olympic Games London 2012. This public event celebrates the community’s support of the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee, headquartered in Colorado Springs – “Olympic City USA”, Team USA, and the Olympic ideals of peace, respect, and unity.
Comcast is a proud sponsor of the celebration, and excited to host meet and greet opportunities with U.S. Olympians and Paralympians, offer fun family photo opportunities with Team USA standees, and provide access to free, public Xfinity WiFi in the Tokyo Games Fan Zone – located in the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum plaza.
Swing by our Xfinity tent located at W. Vermijo Ave directly east of the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum from 12:00PM – 8:00PM to meet an athlete in-person and learn more about how you, your family, and friends can experience the Olympic Games as an Xfinity customer through X1, Flex, and the Xfinity Stream app.
