The Championships, along with the IAAF World Championships London 2017 that follow from 4th – 13th August, together celebrate the Summer of World Athletics, with more than 3,000 athletes from over 200 nations set to compete.
Niels de Vos, championship director said of the deal: “Securing such a major multinational as BP is great news for us. We are aware of their support for the Paralympic movement and we are delighted that they have agreed to extend this to support to the World Para Athletics Championships London 2017.”
Duncan Blake, BP’s global brand director said: “BP was one of the first major brands to support the global Paralympic movement. The energy within Para sport is truly inspirational, and being involved in this world class Para sporting event at the venue of the London 2012 Paralympic Games brings us back to where our support began. We supported the last World Para Athletics Championships in Doha 2015 and we look forward to another summer of exciting, inspiring and daring Para sport.”
