  • 1. How much is the Rio 2016 Organising Committee budget?



    The Rio 2016 Organising Committee handles the planning and operation of the Games. For this reason, it counts on a budget of R$7.4 billion. This total is the sum of the predicted value in the Candidature File, corrected by inflation accumulated during this period, as well as the resultant growth of the inclusion of four new sports. In addition, the costs of new technologies have been added, which could not have been foreseen at the time of the Candidature File, as well as extra security expenses and funding for enjoyment of the Olympic Village.

    They are private resources, which will be collected by the Committee during the Olympic journey. The values foreseen in the dossier of the Candidature File as a government contribution is not part of this budget, but were updated and incorporated into the Matrix of Responsibilities.

    The Organising Committee is not responsible for any building works. The costs of building works for venues and infrastructure are managed by the three levels of government.
