Allianz has announced an exclusive sponsorship deal with RTÉ, becoming the official broadcast sponsor for the coverage of the Paris 2024 Paralympic and Olympic Games. This exciting partnership, brokered by Starcom, will bring Irish viewers closer to the action and excitement of the Games, showcasing the inspiring journeys of athletes as they strive for glory on the world stage. Allianz will also be the first brand ever to sponsor RTÉ’s coverage of both the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

As part of the agreement, Allianz will sponsor RTÉ’s comprehensive multi-platform coverage of the games, including live RTÉ TV, live RTÉ Player, and catch up on the RTÉ Player. RTÉ will broadcast 300 plus hours of Paralympic and Olympic coverage across on RTÉ2, RTÉ Player and RTÉ News Channel this summer.

Alongside live action, the coverage will consist of a combination between expert studio analysis as well as insightful commentary directly from Paris as the drama unfolds. The sponsorship will also encompass a range of engaging content designed to celebrate the spirit of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, while highlighting Allianz’s commitment to supporting athletes and the transformative power of sport.

 

Head of Market Management at Allianz Ireland, Mark Brennan commented: “In Allianz, we’ve been a proud partner of the Paralympic Movement since 2006, and the Olympic Movement since 2021. As the only global and local sponsor of both, we are incredibly excited for the upcoming Games. Paris is shaping up to be a Games like no other, and we are thrilled to be supporting RTÉ in bringing all the action of Team Ireland to the Irish public.”

“RTÉ Commercial Director, Gavin Deans added: “We are thrilled to have Allianz onboard as our broadcast sponsor. As a brand they value trust and champion diversity, which makes them a great partner for the Olympics and Paralympics. This is also the first time we have had a single sponsor for both Games and it is a testament to the level of commitment and support that Allianz is making to sport in Ireland. It is fantastic to have the backing of a global leader like Allianz.’

The incredible performance of the Irish athletes at the recent European Athletics Championships has given Irish audiences a flavour of what to expect from RTÉ’s Summer of Sport! Together with Allianz, we are looking forward to bringing these huge sporting events to the people of Ireland and cheering on all our athletes.”

The Paris 2024 Paralympic Games will take place from August 28th to September 9th.
