    Rio 2016 - Qualification criteria

    Each sport on the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games Programme has established a set of criteria which athletes and teams must meet in order to obtain qualification slots for the Games.

    In addition, some sports also offer Bipartite Invitation Commission slots. These are opportunities offered on a discretionary basis by the IPC and the respective International Federation to athletes, who have not had the chance to meet the qualification criteria due to extraordinary circumstances.

    Universality Wildcards may also be offered to athletes from NPCs that have been unable to qualify any athletes for the Games.

    The Qualification Guide for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games can be found on the left side. Note that this document will be updated from time to time. Please check back frequently in order to obtain the most current version of the Guide.

    Sport fans from around the world can buy their Rio 2016 tickets from authorised ticket resellers (ATRs).
