Rule 50

Authorised Identifications

What you need to know as a participant of the Olympic Games

A number of rules are in place for athletes regarding the use of identifications (such as trademarks) on clothing, accessories and equipment during the Olympic Games. Rule 50 exists in particular to keep the focus on sport and the athletes, and to ensure that all competition venues and other Olympic venues and sites remain free from advertising, publicity, demonstrations and political, religious and racial propaganda. Make sure you read our Q&A factsheet below, and contact your NOC for more information.
