WWE will once again be teaming up with the Special Olympics as they become the promotional partner for the 2015 Special Olympics World Games which will take place through Los Angeles from July 25 through August 2.
“There are no bigger fans of WWE than our athletes and we are thrilled to be part of the organization’s growing commitment to Special Olympics around the world,” said Patrick McClenahan, President and CEO of LA2015. “We thank the McMahon Family, WWE Superstars and Divas for sharing the World Games’ mission of acceptance and inclusion with its worldwide audience of fans.”
This is not the first time that WWE has teamed up to help the Special Olympics. Last year, WWE was a founding partner for the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games, and the company served as the official production partner, producing daily recaps of all competitions with WWE Superstars and Divas attending to help out. The company also produced a one hour TV show for Fox Sports 1 about the Special Olympics last year.
“WWE is proud to continue our support of Special Olympics through this new partnership with the 2015 Special Olympics World Games, and use the power of our global brand to shine a light on these inspirational athletes, as well as the message of acceptance and inclusion,” said Stephanie McMahon, WWE Chief Brand Officer. “The passion and dedication of each athlete motivates WWE Superstars and Divas, and people all around the world. We look forward to cheering them on in Los Angeles this summer.”
