Via The Olympic Federation of Ireland:
Today at an event in the Sport Ireland Institute the Olympic Federation of Ireland (OFI) signed an agreement with officials from the city of Fukuroi for Team Ireland’s Tokyo 2020 pre games training camp.
The OFI also announced that it has appointed Finnish company, Elämys Group, as its Authorised Ticket Reseller (ATR) for the Tokyo 2020 Games following a rigorous selection process.
Before the final appointment of the new ATR the OFI board asked Grant Thornton to conduct a thorough review of the company. As part of its review Grant Thornton examined the firm’s financial stability, ownership structures, industry checks, regulatory compliance, and consumer protections.
On the basis of the findings of that report the OFI Board were satisfied to appoint Elämys Group as the Federation’s official ATR for Toyko 2020.
