Visa, the first global sponsor of the IPC and sponsor of the Paralympic Games since 2002, is the official payment service and only card accepted at all Paralympic Games venues to purchase Paralympic tickets, official Games merchandise, or food and beverages in venues.

Visa retains exclusive marketing and promotional rights within the Payment Services category and activation opportunities for financial institution clients and merchants throughout the world.

By engaging in dialogue, raising awareness of existing Visa products and services (e.g., online banking and bill payment, Visa Paralympic website), developing new technologies specifically for the needs of persons with an impairment (e.g., voice-activated and Braille ATMs), extending issuance, and creating an affinity with Visa’s global network of financial institution clients, Visa provides this global community with greater access and choice.
