The World Boccia Championships

About

Watch Britain’s super-human, Paralympic athletes take on the world’s best at the BISFed 2018 World Boccia Championships at Exhibition Centre Liverpool, sister venue to Echo Arena 12-18 August 2018.

Battling it out for world titles, as well as crucially important ranking points ahead of the Tokyo Paralympic Games in 2020, come and witness a sport which demands muscle control and precision and requires the ultimate concentration and skill.

A limited number of discounted, early bird tickets are available until 11 March 2018.

Hopes are certainly riding high for the British team. Leading the way is David Smith MBE who won gold at the Rio Paralympics in 2016:

“For us as athletes, it’s a huge coup that it is taking place on home turf. Support from a home crowd means everything – we felt it in London 2012 and it was spectacular – and I truly believe that knowing the crowd is willing you on really can lift your performance to another level.

“This is also the first ever international boccia event, outside of a Paralympics, that is ticketed so it is a big moment for the sport. The Championship team is being really innovative in the way it is building a brilliant, spectator-friendly event so if you have never seen international boccia before, here’s your chance. We would really love to see as many of you – schools, clubs, individuals and families – out in force to support us.”

This is a great opportunity to watch world class sporting action ahead of the Paralympic Games in just two years’ time. But the event also aims to create a long-lasting legacy. A family-friendly sports festival showcasing the sport of boccia and the opportunities to play will run alongside the nail-biting sporting action.
