Next Year’s NJPW G1 Climax Moving To The Fall Due To 2020 Tokyo Olympics

Aug 30, 2019 - by Steve Gerweck

New Japan Pro Wrestling’s G1 Climax tournament typically runs from early/mid July until early/mid August, but next year there will be a temporary change to that schedule.

Due to the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo (July 24-August 9), the G1 Climax will be moving to the fall, according to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Since most of the more prominent arenas in the arena will be booked up, NJPW decided it would be best to hold the tournament later in the year so they can still utilize those venues for their biggest tournament of the year
