The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020), the Rugby World Cup 2019 Organising Committee and the Organising Committee of the Kansai World Masters Games 2021 today entered into a partnership agreement under which the three organisations will exchange knowledge and expertise in order to maximise the benefits and impact of their respective events.
The organisers will share their experiences preparing for and managing major sporting events, covering areas such as marketing, public relations and volunteer recruitment and training programmes, aiming to ensure the success of the three events.
Through the hosting of these events over three consecutive years, the organisers also aim to give a boost to sporting and cultural activities in Japan, spur the economy and help build a society which promotes the active engagement of all citizens in sport.
A signing ceremony to mark the inauguration of the agreement was held today, attended by Tokyo 2020 CEO Toshiro Muto, Rugby World Cup 2019 Organising Committee CEO Akira Shimazu, and Hiroo Kinoshita, Secretary General of the Organising Committee of the Kansai World Masters Games 2021.
