Craig Nicholson, Head of World Para Swimming said:

“We are thrilled to have Allianz returning as the Title Partner of the World Championships. Allianz has a long history of support to Para swimming and has also previously been the title sponsor of the European Championships in Dublin 2018. This is the biggest event in the sport before the Paralympic Games in Paris and we cannot wait to see the world’s best in action at the Manchester Aquatics Centre.”

Carolyn Rich, Head of Brand Marketing and Social Responsibility, Allianz Commercial, added:

“We’re excited to be back as Partner of the Para Swimming World Championships this year. Allianz has been supporting the Paralympic Movement since 2006, getting behind the athlete community – their dedication and preparation is just inspiring.
