Allianz has signed an agreement to become the official prestige sponsor and insurance partner for the Asian Para Games 2018 in Indonesia this month.
This partnership underlines Allianz’s ambition to use the power of sport to connect with new audiences and enables Allianz to share its expertise in protection solutions with the next generation of insurance customers from Asia.
As part of the agreement, Allianz Indonesia will provide health and liability insurance for the duration of the Games, including protecting more than 19,000 athletes, officials and volunteers during their month long stay in October. Allianz will also provide third party liability insurance covering sports events in 19 venues, and throughout the opening and closing ceremonies.
Joos Louwerier, Country Manager & President Director Allianz Life Indonesia, said, “We are inspired by all the Para Games athletes and are delighted to offer our support as they strive to reach their personal ambitions at the event. We hope that the protection provided by Allianz to thousands of athletes and supporting people will give peace of mind during their month-long stay in Indonesia. For us, we’re confident that this partnership will enable Allianz to broaden its customer base across Asia, and help introduce insurance protection to customers whom might never have considered it before.”
Raja Sapta Oktohari, Chairman of the Indonesia Asian Para Games Organizing Committee (INAPGOC), said, “We’re very proud to have Allianz as a partner of the Indonesia 2018 Asian Para Games as we know the company is the global partner of the International Paralympic Committee. We hope Allianz can continue its support for the Paralympic movement in Indonesia and help Indonesian Para athletes to have better achievement in higher levels.”
Allianz and the Indonesian Asian Para Games Organizing Committee announced the partnership at an event in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The announcement meets Allianz’s commitment to further support the development of sports in the region, and follows Allianz’s recent agreement with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to become part of its ‘Worldwide Olympic Partner’ programme from 2021.
The Asia Para Games is a multisport event held every four years for athletes with physical disabilities from 42 countries across the region. The event will take place next month from October 6-13, in Jakarta, Indonesia.
