IOC made more demanding contract with Rio 2016

The contract signed by London 2012 to the Rio concluded by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) chose to tighten the requirements for carrying out the Olympics and Paralympics 2016. The Lancenet! had access to the treaty which usually plaster the host city and makes it hostage to the authorization of an international entity to engage in any act.

The main change to the contract signed on October 2, after Rio elected seat in 2016 in Denmark, was the transformation in the optional payment of an undisclosed amount on revenue from international marketing program of the entity, plus agreements relating to all forms of transmission of the Games.


This value, now optional, it was a payment made by the IOC, regardless of the rights that the host city has already received about all these recipes. And the international body stated in the contract that will make the payment after completion and assessment of the Games.

Another change was accepted by Rio obliged to send to the IOC, three years after the end of the Games, a final report on the impact of implementation of the disputes in the country. This clause requires that the Committee 2016 run for at least another year, because their extinction was due to occur in 2018.

Both Mayor Eduardo Paes as the president of the Brazilian Olympic Committee and the 2016 Organizing Committee, Carlos Arthur Nuzman, who signed the document, no comment. Claimed to be prevented by confidentiality clauses of the contract.
