Singtel has announced that it has extended its backing of the Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC) until 2022.

The five-year renewal will see the telecommunications brand continue to support Team Singapore in various sporting events, including the 2017 Southeast Asian Games, the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games and the Summer Olympics in Tokyo in 2020. The Singaporean company will help fund the training of the nation’s athletes as they prepare for the competitions to promote and develop sports in the country.

The deal marks the continuation of a partnership which was first in place for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Chris Chan, general secretary of the Singapore National Olympic Council, said: “Since 2012, Singtel has celebrated many momentous milestones with Team Singapore – two bronze medals at the London 2012 Olympic Games, historic gold medals at the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games and Rio 2016 Olympic Games among many others. We are thankful for the support from Singtel and look forward to continue the successful and meaningful partnership we share.”

“We've been supporting these athletes for the past five years and will do whatever we can to help them excel,” added Yuen Kuan Moon, the chief executive officer of Singtel. “Singtel will contribute by doing what we do best – connecting people. Through our network, athletes can stay connected with their loved ones and sporting fans at home and to give our athletes the peace of mind while they do their best for our country.”
