It is a solid proof that the economy growth and increasing fans enthusiasm holds very important roles in the vibe and hype of the upcoming Tokyo Olympics 2020 event.

This fantastic number was starting when NBCUniversal started selling their ads spots in June. Of course, it is far earlier than before. But Lovinger, the representative of the channel claimed that putting the ad sales ahead of schedule was not wrong at all.

Not to mention that the advertising deals between the respective channel and Olympic officials has changed too. It is also one of the most significant factors to contribute to the insane sales of the ads.
