Tokyo 2020 makes first sponsorship connection with NTT

Organisers of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games have announced Nippon Telegraph and Telephone as the event’s first official gold partner.

Under the terms of the deal, NTT will serve as the Tokyo 2020 organising committee’s official telecommunications partner.

Gold partners will make up the highest tier of Tokyo 2020’s sponsorship programme, with official partners and official supporters the second and third tiers respectively.

NTT has supported Japan’s three previous stagings of the Olympics – the 1964 summer Games in Tokyo and the 1972 and 1998 winter Games in Sapporo and Nagano respectively.

The financial terms of the sponsorship with Tokyo 2020 were not disclosed.
