Get your school involved with the Championships

After the iconic London Stadium hosted the stunning Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2012, this is your school's chance to be part of the next moment in history.

 

World Para Athletics Championships tickets available to all UK schools

The World Para Athletics Championships promise to be the must-see event of 2017 with the likes of Jonnie Peacock, Kadeena Cox and Hannah Cockcroft all taking to the track again in front of a home crowd. It’s the perfect way to end the school year – watching the world's best athletes in our world-class venue.

Our London schools ticket offer, launched in January and relaunched in February in association with the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, gives 250,000 schoolchildren across Greater London the opportunity to attend the Championships. Due to the overwhelming response, we opened up the offer to all schools nationwide, allowing tens of thousands of schoolchildren across the country the opportunity to attend the biggest sporting event of the year. Details include:

* A discounted price – it’s just £3 per pupil with accompanying adults/teachers attending for free.

* School sessions – Sun 16 July (morning session) and Mon 17, Tues 18 and Wed 19 July (evening sessions). 17 & 18 July morning sessions are now full.
