TOKYO -- Corporate sponsors of the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics are on track to provide an extra 20 billion yen ($192 million) to help pay to postpone the event to 2021, Nikkei learned Friday.

Of the games' 68 Japanese sponsors, the 15 so-called Olympic Gold Partners could provide 1 billion yen each, according to a source familiar with the matter. Terms are being ironed out before existing sponsorship deals expire at the end of the year.
