Basic Agreement Reached with All 68 Tokyo 2020 Domestic Partners regarding Contract Extension

Tokyo, 24 December 2020 - The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020) today announced that, with regard to the hosting of the Tokyo 2020 Games next year, it has reached basic agreement with all 68 Tokyo 2020 domestic partner companies on an extension of their sponsorship contracts. Based on this agreement, we are proceeding with the conclusion of contracts with all partners.

Tokyo 2020 President MORI Yoshiro commented as follows:

"We have recently confirmed that we have reached basic agreement with all domestic partners supporting the Tokyo 2020 Games regarding the extension of their contracts into 2021.

The Tokyo 2020 Games have received the greatest amount of financial support from domestic partners in the history of the Olympic Games. This level of cooperation with companies from across the country is extremely heartening. As 2020 comes to a close, we would like to thank them again for their continued support. In the midst of this year's hardships, we believe that it is because of the immense and varied support from our TOP partners as well as our domestic partners that we have been able to face forward and continue preparations for the Games.

We have felt the high expectations that people have for the new form that the Olympic and Paralympic Games will take in 2021. We believe that holding the Olympic and Paralympic Games next summer will serve as proof that humankind has overcome the pandemic, and that the creation of an environment where top athletes from all over the world can gather to perform at their best will open the door to a new era for business, for Japan and for the world.

As we move into next year, we will continue to prepare for a Games fit for a post-corona world with the support and encouragement of everyone involved."
