Boston Consulting Group K.K (BCG Japan) has been announced as a Tokyo 2020 official supporter, taking their number of domestic partners to 66.

The company will serve in the professional services category of the Tokyo 2020 sponsorship programme, covering strategy consulting, project management, planification and management consulting.

Tokyo 2020 President Yoshirō Mori welcomed the addition of BCG Japan as a support of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

He highlighted that the company had previously helped the Organising Committee in several areas.

"We are delighted to welcome BCG Japan as an official supporter," Mori said.

"BCG Japan has already supported us in the establishment of a roadmap and ticket pricing strategy.

"We believe that as a proven business management consulting firm with 50 years of experience in Japan, BCG Japan will continue to provide major support and collaborate as we aim for the success of the Tokyo 2020 Games."

BCG Japan's addition continues Tokyo 2020's extensive partnership programme, with the IOC revealing earlier this year that Tokyo 2020 had achieved in excess of $3 billion (£2.4 billion/€2.6 billion) in domestic sponsorship.

London 2012 was previously believed to hold the record, when $1.1 billion (£866 million/€967 million) was achieved.
