Global swimwear brand Arena has been announced on Wednesday (12 July) as the new World Para Swimming Official Supplier. 

The partnership will see Arena as the official supplier of the upcoming Manchester 2023 Para Swimming World Championships. 

Nearly 550 athletes from 67 nations are set to compete at the World Championships which will be held at the newly refurbished Manchester Aquatics Centre from 31 July to 6 August.

Arena’s support to World Para Swimming also includes next year’s Para Swimming European Open Championships in a host city still to be announced.

Craig Nicholson, Head of World Para Swimming, said: “It is fantastic to have Arena partnering with World Para Swimming and to be able to share the news ahead of this month’s World Championships. This announcement marks an exciting opportunity for our sport and for Arena to promote Para swimming worldwide.”

“Fundamental to the way we operate is a commitment to improve the quality of life for all by promoting and enabling an active lifestyle, and building an understanding of water as an integral element to mental and physical well-being”, said Giuseppe Musciacchio, Arena Deputy CEO.

“We have always prioritized strong connections with the most important swimming and watersports federations around the world, since we share their goal to grow watersports, and to increase inclusivity and diversity using sport as a driver for social wellbeing. So with the World Championships in Manchester just weeks away, we’re excited to be working with World Para Swimming to start bringing these messages to the world on one of para sport’s premier stages.”

The Manchester 2023 Para Swimming World Championships will be the biggest Para swimming event outside of the Paralympic Games and one that could be influential for many on the road to Paris 2024.
