Finding a hotel during the Olympic Games can be harder than launching a shotput across a bed of sand. Some host cities find themselves investing millions of dollars to construct new hotels just for the Games, which is a strain on resources and the environment, and can send the city into debt. In an effort to avoid these problems, Airbnb and the International Olympics Committee teamed up to offer accommodation to attendees during the next handful of Olympic Games around the world.
The international home-sharing site and the IOC signed a nine-year deal to provide alternative accommodations for guests of the Games, which would span from the Tokyo Games this summer to five other Games and Paralympic events in the near future, including the winter Games in Beijing in 2022, the summer Games in Paris in 2024, the winter Games in Milan in 2026 and the summer Games in Los Angeles in 2028.
Airbnb’s slate of accommodation options will not include the lodging in the Olympic village, which will remain a site for athletes. Instead, Airbnb will guarantee 40,000 rooms for families, visitors, athletes and officials.
As the Olympics’ newest sponsor, Airbnb joins the ranks of other sponsors such as Coca-Cola, Samsung, Visa and Toyota.
