NAOC LAUNCHES NEW SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM FOR '98 GAMES

     Nagano Winter Olympics organizers officially launched their
"official supplier" program Wednesday in order to help secure
sufficient funds for the '98 Winter Games.  NAOC and the JOC
started the program to cover fund shortages from their "Gold
Sponsors" program.  Under the new program, each official supplier
will offer a maximum of 700 million yen for lesser rights than
"Gold Sponsors" (KYODO NEWS, 1/10).
