Transparency of figures

The Association of Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF) is being transparent. Meeting earlier this week in Lausanne for the last time this year, its Council reviewed a large number of subjects, including the preparation of the Paris 2024 and Los Angeles 2028 Games, governance, the Russian question and, not surprisingly, finances. It was decided to make public the breakdown of revenues from the Tokyo 2020 Games distributed to the International Federations. At the top of the list, World Athletics stands out with a grant of 39.48 million dollars. It is ahead of a duo of international swimming (FINA) and gymnastics (FIG) federations, whose share amounts to $31.36 million. Five other bodies follow a few steps behind – UCI, FIVB, FIBA, FIFA and ITF – each receiving $24.34 million. At the bottom of the list are the international federations of golf (IGF), rugby (World Rugby) and modern pentathlon (UIPM). Their subsidy amounts to USD 12.98 million. The amounts paid out for the Tokyo 2020 Games are all strictly identical to those distributed after the Rio 2016 Games. Note: the international bodies of additional sports are not affected by this distribution of IOC revenue for the Olympic Games.
