Local Organizing Committee pens partnerships with SIXT, DHL and Sydney Olympic Park Authority
SYDNEY (Australia) - With only 50 days to go until FIBA's most prestigious women's competition takes to Australian shores, the Local Organising Committee (LOC) has today announced the commercial support of SIXT, DHL Supply Chain (DHL), and Sydney Olympic Park Authority for the FIBA Women's Basketball World Cup 2022.
The trio will work closely with the LOC to deliver a bold, engaging and inclusive event, tipping off at Sydney Olympic Park on Thursday, 22 September.
Mobility service provider SIXT will assist with transporting teams, staff and officials by supplying the fleet of event vehicles. To support the LOC's goal of hosting the most sustainable Women's Basketball World Cup since the event's inception, 30% of the vehicles provided will be electric.
To support the requirements of welcoming 12 teams, 144 players, 100 officials, and hundreds of volunteers and staff to Sydney Olympic Park, global logistics company DHL will be the official warehousing and logistics partner for the event. Fans will also be able to experience DHL's logistical innovations courtesy of a virtual reality activation at the event's Fan Zone.
Hosting all the major event operations, including competition and training venues and official hotels, Sydney Olympic Park Authority will ensure visitors in the lead-up to and during the September event will enjoy a full event experience within their precinct; including the support of the event fan zone, which will be open to the general public, and the provision of branding, featuring stunning illuminations, throughout the Park.
The FIBA Women's Basketball World Cup will be held from Thursday 22 September to Saturday 1 October 2022 at Sydney Olympic Park in Sydney, Australia and is supported by the NSW Government through its major events and tourism agency, Destination NSW and the Office of Sport.
