AboutGO GB

Join us in supporting the British Olympic and Paralympic teams with the “GO GB” slogan!

Yokohama City, Kawasaki City and Keio University will host the pre-Games preparation camps of the British Olympic and Paralympic teams for the Tokyo 2020 Games.
“Friends of Great Britain” is comprised of these three hosts. Various events will be rolled out as part of the Japanese public and Keio student’s support for the British teams, under the “GO GB” slogan.

What are pre-Games preparation camps?

Pre-Games preparation camps are intended to allow competitors from the respective countries taking part in the Olympic and Paralympic Games to accustom to the time difference and acclimatize to the weather as well as to fine-tune in advance of the main competition. Rather than being hosted by a particular city they are implemented by the country as a whole and with neighboring countries.
