WORLDWIDE PARALYMPIC PARTNER
Bridgestone is the seventh Worldwide Paralympic Partner, in a deal that runs from 2018 to 2024.
As a partner in the Paralympic Movement’s highest sponsorship tier, Bridgestone receives global IPC rights in categories that include tyres, tyre services and selected automotive vehicle services, self-propelled bicycles, seismic isolation bearings, and a variety of building and industrial products.
Bridgestone also is a Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games Gold Partner and a partner of the Japan, Thailand and USA Paralympic teams. The company has supported several leading international Para athletes, including eight Bridgestone employees who are training to qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
Increasing its commitment to support the global Paralympic Movement aligns with the company’s “Chase Your Dream” message, which aims to encourage people to overcome obstacles and persevere in pursuit of their goals.
“Bridgestone is honoured to serve as a Worldwide Paralympic Partner and help the International Paralympic Committee realise its important mission of creating a more inclusive society through Para sport.
"Bridgestone has long been committed to improving the way people move, live, work and play, and we are excited to extend these efforts to support the Paralympic Movement and promote diversity and inclusion in all aspects of life.
"By providing new technology and equipment to Para athletes, hosting community events that teach Paralympic values, supporting employees who are training to compete in the Paralympic Games, and more, Bridgestone is working to empower people of all abilities to overcome obstacles and chase their dreams.”
