The next BWF Para-Badminton World Championships, which
will take place in Basel, Switzerland on 21 -- 25 August 2019, will see Total
coming on board as Title Sponsor.
This is in addition to Total's ongoing role as the Title Sponsor for the BWF major events, which includes the TOTAL
BWF Thomas & Uber Cups, TOTAL BWF Sudirman Cup and TOTAL BWF World
Championships; and the Official Energy
Partner
for all HSBC BWF World Tours.

 

"Total is proud to strengthen our support and
association with Badminton -- one of Asia's most popular sports. Our partnership
with BWF, over the last five years, has created a lasting brand impact in terms
of brand awareness and engagement with stakeholders. With 38 tournaments played
in 15 key countries across Asia, and with over 600 million potential households
reach globally every year, we are looking forward to 53 more tournaments up to
2021," said Christian Cabrol, President and CEO of Total Oil Asia Pacific.
"Through our sponsorship of the BWF Para-Badminton World Championships and to
make the badminton sport accessible to all, Total firmly believes in promoting
diversity and inclusion thereby creating equal opportunities for all to work
together for a shared future."

 

"Para badminton as a sport is now in a very strong
position as we build towards the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. We look forward
to celebrating this milestone and creating awareness around our Para badminton
development initiatives for the foreseeable future," says Poul-Erik Høyer,
President of Badminton World Federation. He continues, "Our partnerships are
central to this success and we are delighted to have extended our relationship
with Total as Official Energy Partner for the World Tours and Title Sponsor for
BWF Major Championships to 2021. We especially look forward to celebrating our
five years together at the TOTAL BWF Sudirman Cup 2019 next month in Nanning,
China.

 

The badminton sport is generally associated with
energy, performance and endurance, while Total's latest breakthrough innovation
TOTAL QUARTZ with Age Resistance Technology provides better performance,
ultimate resistance and is more optimal for engine protection. This
partnership will continue to boost brand recognition and create business
opportunities in the region, beyond the traditional motoring arena. In 2015,
Total became the first global energy company to partner with the BWF, where the
partnership has since been extended until 2021.
