General Admission tickets for the 2015 IPC Swimming World Championships in Glasgow have been officially launched. This will be the nation’s biggest para-sport event since the London Paralympic Games in 2012.
Paralympics Ireland is hoping to send a team of swimmers based on MQS and selection being reached by athletes to the event in Glasgow. With the Championships taking place so close to home soil, Paralympics Ireland is encouraging the Irish crowd to come out and support the team.
About 650 swimmers from 50 countries will converge on Glasgow’s Tollcross International Swimming Centre for next summer’s prestigious event which will run from 13-19 July.
The World Championships, which are staged every two years, are the biggest event on the calendar for para-swimming outside of the Paralympic Games and will see the world’s best male and female para-swimmers in action.
Across seven days of breath-taking competition there will be 172 medals up for grabs with athletes competing in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, individual medley, freestyle relay and medley relay across 14 different classes, with distances ranging from 50m-400m.
Tickets are on general public sale from Monday 15 December via www.ticketmaster.co.uk/Glasgow2015 priced at just £10/£15 for adults for heats/finals, while all under-16s go free (t&c’s apply).
