Toyota has continued its long-standing support of the Aussie Olympic team by signing-on to be the exclusive automotive partner for the upcoming Rio games.
The Australian Olympic Committee confirmed the exclusive arrangement this afternoon which covers not only the upcoming Rio Summer Olympics, but also the Winter Games which will be held in South Korea in 2018.
Toyota has supported the Australian Olympic family for 28 years now and AOC President, John Coates, says the car companyâ€™s assistance is very much appreciated.
“Toyotaâ€™s support comes at a vital time for our athletes with the Opening Ceremony in Rio less than three months away,”
“This partnership with Toyota will play a significant role in ensuring a successful campaign by the Australian Olympic Team at the first Games to be held in South America.
“Without the generosity of sponsors like Toyota, the AOC would not be able to provide the funds to send the 2016 Australian Olympic Team to Rio.”
