Who is the owner of the properties of one Games edition?

  • Who is the owner of the properties of one Games edition?

    For as long as the Organising Committee of the Olympic Games exists, the properties (medals, emblems, mascot…) are the exclusive property of the OCOG. Upon the expiry of this period, all rights in or relating to such emblem, mascot and other marks, designs, badges, posters and objects shall thereafter belong entirely to the IOC.

    Hence, any request related to the use of such properties should be directed to the OCOG directly, if still existing (e.g. Beijing 2022, Paris 2024, Milano Cortina 2026, Los Angeles 2028).
