About the Tokyo 2020 Sponsorship Programme: The Olympic sponsor programme is divided into four separate categories, with the IOC's The Olympic Partner (TOP) programme constituting the very highest level of Olympic sponsorship. The Worldwide TOP Partners who support the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games are Coca-Cola, Atos, Bridgestone, Dow, GE, McDonald's, Omega, Panasonic, Procter and Gamble, Samsung, Toyota and Visa.
The three remaining categories are designated for domestic sponsors.

Domestic sponsors will also be core components of Tokyo 2020's Marketing Programme, and until 2020 they will be indispensable partners both for the successful delivery of the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games and as partners of the Japanese national Olympic and Paralympic teams. Accordingly, they will be accorded the rights to use Olympic and Paralympic designations and imagery including emblems, mascots and slogans. In collaboration with all sponsors who take part in the Marketing Programme, the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee will work to contribute to a brighter tomorrow for both Japan and the world.
