During the 2020-01-31 Aqours livestream, they announced 2 stages of Kanshasai tickets: priority entry tickets and stage viewing tickets.
If you just want to go to Kanshasai and don't need priority entry or stage viewing tickets, there are usually general admission tickets that you can buy without lottery. Expect details for those within a month before.
Ticket sales will be held on CN Play Guide, and requires an account. (Signing up for a CN Play Guide account may require verification of a Japanese phone number via phone call.)
Priority entry ticket lotteries: these tickets let you enter first and come with application tickets for the stage events. There will be two rounds of lotteries:
- Feb 10 12:00 - Feb 18 23:59 (results Feb 21)
- Mar 4 12:00 - Mar 10 23:59 (results Mar 13)
