This file includes the operating budget, balanced at least in most versions since 1984, with the exception of the 1992 April Olympics, as well as construction and infrastructure development work. According to the organizers, the “budget related to the Olympic sites” is estimated at 7.5 billion dollars (6.3 billion euros), a cost that is fully covered by the authorities under the banner of local development in the medium term.
Most of the revenue comes from local sponsors ($ 3.3 billion), aside from the contribution from the International Olympic Committee ($ 1.3 billion through the merger of part of the TOP International Sponsorship program, or € 1.1 billion).
At the end of 2020, the Japanese organizers reassessed the event’s budget at $ 15.4 billion
Ticket sales are expected to generate $ 800 million, which is an unconfirmed estimate, especially after the ban on foreign audiences and the lack of specification of the number of local audiences that will be allowed to attend. On the other hand, about three quarters of that revenue (73%) comes from television rights, so that the economic load is focused on viewers on the screen instead of audiences on the stands, while the proportion of the international sponsorship program is 18%.
The International Olympic Committee keeps ten percent of the revenues to cover its operating expenses, and redistributes 90 percent, or about $ 5 billion, for the 2013-2016 cycle to fuel the Olympic movement for four years. This amount is used in particular to fund international sports federations, which are divided into five groups according to their importance: athletics, gymnastics and swimming receive about 40 million dollars, compared to 14 million for the modern five, rugby or golf.
The International Olympic Committee contributes half of the budget of the International Anti-Doping Agency and WADA (about 20 million dollars as a contribution in 2021), while the rest comes from governments.
