Santiago 2023 Pan American and Parapan American Games will be sponsored by Mitsubishi Motors.
Organizers will be able to transport over 8,000 athletes, coaches, officials, and volunteers around venues in the Chilean capital and beyond with over 600 vehicles provided by the Japanese car manufacturer.
“Having an international brand such as Mitsubishi in the Official Sponsor tier is a great pride for the Games,” said Felipe De Pablo, chief executive of Santiago 2023.
“These types of alliances reinforce the idea that interest in the event is rising among the different national and international companies and industries, and that several of them want to become a part of the largest multi-sports event that our country has ever hosted.”
The company joins Molten, radio station AND, Michelob Ultra, and Imagen Chile on the list of commercial partners for the Games.
“We are very proud to be a part of this huge event, and to contribute to the development of athletes and Para athletes in the continent and to their preparation for these Games,” said Ignacio Bengoechea, general manager of Mitsubishi Motors Chile.
“Likewise, we are proud to contribute as a brand to your organization, since we are sure that it will be a huge party for Chile and for every participating country.”
In 2023, the Pan American Games will take place from October 20 to November 5, while the Parapan American Games will take place from November 17 to 25.
Santiago was unanimously selected as host city in 2017 and will host the Games for the first time in 2023.
In 1975 and 1987, Chile’s capital was awarded the rights to host the Pan American Games, but withdrew as host due to financial and political difficulties.
