Following the exciting announcement of the 2013 International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Athletics World Championships in Lyon, France, and the 2012 IPC Athletics European Championships in Stadskanaal, the Netherlands, IPC Athletics is now inviting potential host cities to show an expression of interest for four more major international championship events.

The IPC is inviting cities to express their interest to participate in the bid process for the 2015 and 2017 IPC Athletics World Championships, in addition to the 2014 and 2016 IPC European Athletics World Championships.

The deadline for expression of interest is 2 March 2012.

These two events are some of the biggest para-sport competitions around the globe. The European Championships typically draw around 500 athletes from 40 countries, while the World Championships garner as many as 1,500 athletes from nearly 120 nations.
