Allianz sponsors London 2019 World Para Swimming Championships


Allianz has been confirmed as the title sponsor of the London 2019 World Para Swimming Allianz Championships. The competition will take place from 9 to 15 September at the London Aquatics Centre, located on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

A long-term supporter of Para sports, Allianz for the first time partners with World Para Swimming as title sponsor of the World Championships.

Last year, the company supported another major Para Swimming event as title sponsor of the Dublin 2018 Allianz European Championships.

Around 600 swimmers from 60 nations are set to take part in the World Championships which is a qualifier for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

Tracy Glassford, World Para Swimming manager, said: “We are delighted to have Allianz for the first time as the title sponsor of the World Championships. Allianz has a long history of support to Para swimming and Para sports events. With their support, and together with the London 2019 Local Organising Committee and their partners, we will deliver an historic event at one of the most iconic swimming pools in the world at the London Aquatics Centre.”

Jon Dye, chief executive officer, Allianz Insurance said: “We’re proud to be partnering with this exciting event and wish all of the athletes involved the best of luck. As a business we’re committed to promoting inclusion, diversity and excellence; a vision which is shared with the Paralympic movement.“

Para swimming fans can already purchase tickets for the London 2019 World Para Swimming Allianz Championships as the early bird ticket sales have started on Monday. 

This will be the ninth edition of the World Para Swimming Championships and the second time the event has been staged in Great Britain following the 2015 edition in Glasgow.
