PHILADELPHIA and LOS ANGELES, March 23, 2021, /3BL Media/ - Today, Comcast announced it has expanded its longstanding commitment to the Olympic and Paralympic Games, extending its partnership with Team USA through 2028 and unveiling a founding partnership with the LA28 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
“Supporting Team USA is one of our greatest honors, and we are proud to extend this special partnership and begin the exciting journey toward the LA28 Games,” said Brian L. Roberts, Chairman and CEO of Comcast Corporation. “Every Games year, our company comes together to share the extraordinary moments and stories of the world’s best athletes and celebrate their hope and resiliency. It is truly a privilege to be able to bring that inspiration home to America for years to come, and we’re looking forward to doing just that this summer in Tokyo.”
As Founding Partner of the LA28 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Comcast will work with LA28 over the next several years to drive lasting social change and build a more equitable and inclusive society, including by championing the Paralympic Movement as Los Angeles prepares for its first-ever Paralympic Games.
