The iconic sports brand joins France’s Ministry of Sport, French banking group BPCE and EGG Events in the top-tier category. EDF and Vivendi are associate partners.

The International Paralympic Committee (IPC), UN Women and World Federation of the Sporting Goods Industry (WFSGI) are among those who will help to co-create the event as official ‘Proud Supporters.’

The second edition will again be held under the patronage of UNESCO and the high patronage of French President Emmanuel Macron.

The event will run from February 1-5, 2021 and will take place primarily online, with speakers linked live across studio settings in Paris and five future Olympic host cities – Beijing, Tokyo, Milan, Dakar and Los Angeles. Where local health conditions allow, physical events will also be organized with support from France’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Global Sports Week will also feature a first-of-its-kind virtual exhibition – the GSWMarketplace – comprising immersive, customizable and interactive booths, accessible for businesses and organizations of all types and sizes.

“We’re pleased to renew our support for Global Sports Week, which offers an important platform for exchange around the key issues linking sport, business and society,” said IPC president Andrew Parsons in a statement. 

“The IPC firmly believes that Change Starts with Sport and Global Sports Week, with its emphasis on multilateral solutions, will set the tone for a defining year for the Paralympic Movement.”
