China's two iconic venues from the 2008 Olympics -- the 'Bird's Nest' and 'Water Cube' have partnered with Internet giant Alisports. The deal will see the two venues --which will also be used for the 2022 Winter Games -- become more accessible for mobile devices during the Olympiad.

The cooperation agreement was announced at a press briefing in Beijing. The 'Bird's Nest' will hold the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2022 Winter Olympics, while the 'Water Cube’ will host the curling competition. The Olympic Stadiums are aiming to upgrade their operations and services with more advanced internet technology for the 2022 Winter Olympics, as well as for the public use ahead of the Games. This cooperation will also help lure more events to the arenas.

"We hope the National Stadium and National Aquatics Center will turn from Olympic sports facilities into platforms for the development of the sports industry. The cooperation will bring more resources to the venues," said Wu Xiaonan, national stadium general manager.

"The National Aquatics Center play host to international tournaments and public competitions each year. We have strong motivation to bring more elite level events here. We will also have more events for the public through this cooperative effort," said Yang Qiyong, national aquatics center general manager.
