Aldi sponsors Paralympics GB

Aldi is the new official partner of ParalympicsGB, as the team competes at the Winter Paralympic Games in Beijing.

The sponsorship, agreed with governing body the British Paralympic Association (BPA), will run through to the next Paralympic Summer Games and means that Aldi is now the sponsor for both Great Britain’s Olympic and Paralympic teams up to Paris 2024.

The partnership builds on Aldi’s existing partnership with TeamGB where they have supported Great Britain’s Olympic team and athletes since 2015.

Aldi has been fuelling Team GB athletes to success since 2015 by providing all athletes with monthly food vouchers, and will extend this program to cover all ParalympicsGB athletes.

In addition, ParalympicsGB athletes will attend the opening of new stores, providing athletes with the opportunity to engage with local communities and raise awareness of ParalympicsGB with shoppers across Great Britain.

Adam Zavalis, Marketing Director at Aldi UK, said: “We’ve been fuelling Team GB with healthy food since 2015 and I’m thrilled that we now have the opportunity to extend that support to Great Britain’s amazing Paralympic athletes. We’re immensely proud to be supporting the Winter team as they compete in Beijing, just as we will the summer athletes, all the way to Paris in two years’ time.”

Mike Sharrock, Chief Executive of the British Paralympic Association said: “We are very excited about this partnership and the potential to reach communities right across the UK. We know Aldi is focused on championing British success through their support for local farmers and suppliers, and through helping our athletes reach their full potential. We look forward to working with Aldi to bring the stories of ParalympicsGB athletes to many more homes, helping to break down barriers for disabled people and change perceptions.

“With two years to go, we’re immensely excited to work with Aldi on the road to Paris – by not only helping to further support our athletes to be best prepared for the Paralympic Games, but more generally helping people in the UK live an active and healthy lifestyle.”
