SOCHI, Russia (AP) - The IOC says French-based technology company Atos has extended its global sponsorship of the Olympics through 2020.

Under the new deal, Atos will provide information technology and management services for the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Terms were not disclosed, though four-year IOC sponsorship deals usually go for up to $100 million.

Atos became the IOC’s worldwide information technology sponsor in 2001. It is one of nine global sponsors signed up for the 2018-20 period.

The Atos deal was announced three days after Panasonic extended its Olympic sponsorship through 2024.
