The Olympic Council of Ireland has appointed Deloitte to conduct an independent review of the organisation's governance arrangements.

The OCI established a three-person crisis management sub-committee to lead the council's response to the controversy over the alleged mis-selling of Rio Olympics tickets.

That sub-committee has now chosen Deloitte to review the manner in which the OCI is governed under its current constitution.

The review will look at the way comparative sporting bodies govern themselves before engaging with "relevant stakeholders" on this.

It is expected the review will be concluded within a month, at which point a report will be furnished to the OCI Executive Committee.

Any recommended changes to the organisation's constitution will then be put to an emergency general meeting.

Meanwhile THG Sports, the company involved in the alleged ticket touting, has said it is making no comment on whether it had been awarded the contract to handle OCI tickets for the 2018 Winter Olympics and 2020 Olympic Games.

It is understood the company had been appointed as the OCI ticket agent for the 2018 and 2020 Games before this summer's Games began.

A spokeperson for the company said it would not be commenting on the matter.

THG was previously the OCI Authorised Ticket Reseller for the London Olympic in 2012.

They had also been put forward as the ATR for Rio but that was rejected by organisers.

Grant Thornton, who are carrying out a separate independent review of ticketing arrangements at the OCI, are to look into what exact arrangements have been put in place with regard to the ATR contract for the Pyeongchang and Tokyo Games.

The Grant Thornton report will be given to Judge Carroll Moran as part of his State inquiry deliberations.
