Allianz begins 8 year worldwide Olympic & Paralympic partnership
Allianz is now the Worldwide Insurance Partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Movements 2021-2028
Allianz expands local initiatives to engage and bring together athletes, teams, volunteers and fans in more than 200 countries
Allianz UK is also celebrating new partnership with TeamGB.
Allianz has officially begun its eight-year worldwide partnership with the Olympic & Paralympic Movements, building on a collaboration with the Paralympic Movement since 2006.
To celebrate the launch, Allianz will run a series of initiatives in the UK to connect its partners and employees with athletes and fans across the world, to engage people with the spirit and values of the Movements. This will start with the chance to take part in the Olympic Torch Relay at Beijing 2022.
Allianz’s commitment to promote inclusion, diversity and excellence, both in the workplace and in the world of competitive sports, has been demonstrated by the existing partnership with ParalympicsGB. The new partnership will see Allianz UK extend its the support for British athletes by partnering with TeamGB from 1 January 2020.
Jon Dye, chief executive, Allianz Holdings, commented: “This is a truly exciting time for Allianz as we launch our new Olympic & Paralympic Partnership, building on our strong global presence and proven track record which follows more than a decade of success with the Paralympic Movement.
“I’m delighted the new partnership will provide us with a unique and powerful platform to connect with audiences around the world. Our shared values make this an excellent fit for our business, as the Olympic and Paralympic visions are very much aligned with our own aim of securing the future for our customers and society. We believe that nothing else empowers, unites and brings out the best in people like the Olympic & Paralympic Movements and we are thrilled to be a part of it.”
Oliver Bäte, chief executive officer of Allianz SE, said: “Allianz is proud to be the Worldwide Insurance Partner of the Olympic & Paralympic Movements. As a supporter of the sports ecosystem and through shared core values of excellence, friendship, inclusion and respect, Allianz and our 148,000 employees and 100,000 agents are excited to care and deliver for athletes, their families and their ambitions.”
IOC president Thomas Bach, commented: “Having announced this new agreement in 2018, our teams have been already been working together in key pilot markets to support athletes and the Olympic Movement. As we start this new Olympic year, we are excited to begin in earnest our global collaboration with Allianz.”
“Allianz brings global visibility to the athletes and values of the Paralympic Movement and we look forward to our next phase working together,” added IPC president Andrew Parsons.
