The Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) announced that it will provide additional funding to the NOCs to support them in their preparations for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 during these difficult times. ANOC’s decision was taken during a videoconference meeting of the Acting ANOC President, Robin Mitchell, the ANOC Vice Presidents, the ANOC Secretary General and the IOC’s Director of Olympic Solidarity.

The meeting was called following the IOC EB’s announcement to provide a financial envelope in response to the COVID-19 crisis and to discuss how ANOC could additionally help NOCs address the challenges that were identified in ANOC’s questionnaire, which was sent to all NOCs in March. The funds available to the NOCs will be available on a case-by-case basis depending on needs, managed through the five Continental Associations and ANOC, and coordinated by Olympic Solidarity.
