The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) is the global governing body of the Paralympic Movement. Her vision is to create an inclusive society through parasport. The IPC headquarters and its management team are located in Bonn. The IPC was founded on September 22, 1989 and is an international non-profit organization with more than 200 members, composed of national Paralympic committees, international associations, regional organizations and international organizations for disabled sports.
The RFI, published by the IPC, offers organizations interested in acquiring rights specific guidelines for submitting bids. The IPC invites interested parties to submit responses by October 30, 2020. All parties interested in an RFI for media rights in Europe should contact [email protected]
Worldwide broadcast rights to the Games were transferred to Beijing 2022 and Paris 2024 under the Host City Agreement, which designated each city to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games by the International Olympic Committee. The cities have selected the IPC as the exclusive agent for the sale and management of media rights to the games. The IPC will have a one-month clarification period from September 17th to October 14th, before the response period ends at the end of October.
The RFI follows on from the award of British television rights for the 2024 Paralympic Games in Paris to Channel 4 last month. The IPC is looking for partners like Channel 4 who:
- Promote and increase awareness of para-sports.
- Create storytelling around the IPC’s passion for inclusion.
- Increase the number of dedicated spectators and Paralympic fans.
- Grow and generate new sources of income.
- Innovation with the trading partners of the IPC.
- Leave a social legacy that includes developing on- and off-air talent with a disability.
