Manufacturer identifications on the Olympic Games uniforms

We draw your attention to Rule 50 of the Olympic Charter regarding the advertising – manufacturer identifications on the uniforms.

The IOC Executive Board determines the principles and conditions under which any form of advertising or other publicity may be authorised.

No form of publicity or propaganda, commercial or otherwise, may appear on persons, on sportswear, accessories or, more generally, on any article of clothing or equipment whatsoever worn or used by the athletes or other participants in the Olympic Games, except for the identification of the manufacturer of the article or equipment concerned, provided that such identification shall not be marked conspicuously for advertising purposes.

We invite all our National Federations to consult their NOC.
