Citi Partnership

In a commitment to nurturing the expansion and advancement of women’s wheelchair basketball throughout the region, Citi, a key partner of PARA SPORT, the grassroots-to-high performance program of the International Paralympic Committee, is supporting the participation of the six teams (Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, India, the Philippines, and the Asia Oceania Team) in these championships.

This collaboration has a dual focus: promoting increased involvement and dismantling barriers. Notably, support is extended to less economically developed nations that might struggle to participate due to financial constraints. Furthermore, a distinctive opportunity arises through the formation of an Asia Oceania Zone team, bringing together players from nations like Nepal, Afghanistan, and Bahrain.


The competition will take place at the Bangkok Youth Center (Thai – Japan) in Bangkok.


The Championships is FREE to attend and open to all spectators. No tickets are necessary.
