FDJ extension just the ticket for French Olympic Committee

French state lottery organisation Française des Jeux (FDJ) has extended its partnership with the French National Olympic Committee (CNOSF) until the end of 2016.

FDJ, which has had a relationship with the organisation since 2000, will retain a host of branding and marketing rights surrounding major events in France.

As part of the deal, FDJ will continue its collaboration with the CNOSF on the Challenge de la Fondation sporting development initiative, in addition to funding CNOSF scholarships for athletes that have excelled in the community.

Additional joint programmes will also continue under the terms of the deal, including the FDJ Foundation, which helps professional athletes find new work after they have ended their sporting career.
