Olympic Rings

The Olympic Games are famous for not having any advertising on the field of play.

So does that mean there are no sponsors for the Olympics?

Certainly not!

Here's why...

Ever since the Olympic Movement was founded in 1894, it has depended on partnerships with the business community to help stage the Olympic Games.

And they're even more important today than ever before.

Commercial partnerships are the driving force behind the promotion, financial security and stability of the Olympic Movement.

This was made clear by Jacques Rogge, President of the International Olympic Committee, who said...

"Without the support of the business community, without its technology, expertise, people, services, products, telecommunications, its financing - the Olympic Games could not and cannot happen. Without this support, the athletes cannot compete and achieve their very best in the world's best sporting event."

Olympic Games Sponsors

The International Olympic Committee's (IOC) commercial programme has four main objectives...

  1. To create long-term commercial relationships to ensure the financial stability of the Olympic Movement

  2. To ensure that the largest possible audience around the world can view and experience the Olympic Games via a variety of broadcast platforms

  3. To ensure appropriate distribution of revenue throughout the Olympic Movement, including future Organising Committees, National Olympic Committees, International Federations and other recognised organisations

  4. To preserve the special character of the Olympic Games, to protect and promote the Olympic image and ideals throughout the world, and to work with all marketing partners to enhance Olympism

The IOC is also committed to the following...

  1. No 'field of play' advertising - The Olympic Games are the only major sporting event in the world where there is no advertising in the stadium or on the athletes

  2. Clean telecast by Olympic Games rights-holding broadcasters

  3. Restricted number of corporate sponsorships

So therefore the IOC has several different levels of sponsorship for the Olympics.

Levels of Sponsors

The Olympic Games reaches billions of people in over 200 countries and territories throughout the world and revenue generated by commercial sponsorships account for more than 40% of Olympic revenues.

Each level of sponsorship entitles companies to different marketing rights in various regions, category exclusivity, and the use of designated Olympic images and marks.

The top level of sponsorship for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games consists of 11 companies who have worldwide sponsorship rights.

These are organised and managed by the IOC.

Then there are additional (lower) levels of sponsorship which are managed by the host city, under the direction of the IOC.

These are domestic sponsorship programmes which grant marketing rights within the host country or territory only.
