The New Zealand Olympic Committee represents the Olympic Movement in New Zealand. We hold the unique mandate to select and send teams to Olympic Games and to promote the Olympic brand and values, a role that has been held for more than 105 years.

We are also responsible for the delivery of the Commonwealth Games.

Our aim is to inspire excellence and pride in New Zealanders and enable our athletes to achieve on the world’s stage.

Games-time performance planning, operations and leadership are our primary focus. We also lead and advocate for sport and athletes and use our international connections to deliver value to New Zealand.

We are heavily reliant on partnerships for funding and are not-for-profit. We operate with integrity and are athlete-focussed.  The New Zealand Olympic Committee works closely with Sport NZ and HPSNZ.

Together with our sports and athletes we inspire New Zealanders and make them proud.
