In May 2017, Paralympics Australia announced Kate McLoughlin as the Chef de Mission, McLoughlin held the position at the 2016 Rio Paralympics. In November 2019, wheelchair rugby player Ryley Batt and table tennis player Daniela di Toro, were named as co-captains.
Paralympics Australia is aiming to send one of Australia’s largest ever Paralympic Teams to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games at a cost in excess of $10 million. Athletes from more than 15 sports will be supported by pilots and guides for vision impaired athletes, ramp assistants for boccia athletes, coaches, managers and operational personnel including medical, technical, and administration staff. In February 2019, the Australian Government announced funding of $8 million to effectively manage the planning, coordination and delivery of the Australian Paralympic Team at 2020 Toyko Paralympics. Paralympics Australia aims to raise the outstanding $2.5million for the 2020 Team through fundraising efforts, corporate sponsors and State Government support.
On 31 January 2015, the IPC officially announced that badminton and taekwondo had been added to the Paralympic programme for 2020, which will replace 7-a-side football and sailing (both dropped due to an insufficient international reach).
