About Bridgestone Corporation’s Worldwide TOP Olympic Partnership

Bridgestone Corporation signed on as an official Worldwide TOP Partner of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on June 13, 2014.

Over and above the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018, the 10-year partnership will see Bridgestone Corporation serve as a Worldwide TOP Partner at the forthcoming Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 (where the company’s global headquarters are located), the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022, and the Olympic Games 2024.

The Partnership also includes support for the next three Youth Olympic Games. The long-term commitment to the Olympic Movement furthers Bridgestone Corporation’s proud sporting heritage and history of innovation, which extends more than 100 years. This will showcase Bridgestone Corporation’s commitment to community service, social responsibility, environmental stewardship, and respect for diversity – all tenets of the Olympic Charter that also lie at the heart of the Bridgestone brand.
