DPG Media, the largest media house in the Netherlands, will be media partner of the European Para Championships (EPC). From 8 to 20 August 2023, ten different parasports will compete in Rotterdam for the European Championships. Partly thanks to this partnership, the event will be presented to a wide audience in an impressive and impactful way.

Strengthen position among sports fans

Rhian Ket, Partnership Manager of DPG Media, stresses the importance of the partnership: "AD has been the number one sports newspaper for years. With a partnership like this, we strengthen our position among sports fans even further. In addition, sports fans can enjoy the whole year. AD and the regional titles bring news and entertainment around sports all year round. The partnership with European Para Championships fits in perfectly with this.


In the coming period, advertisements and content will be published through various DPG channels, both online and offline, to raise public awareness of the European Para Championships.

Strong content presentation

Jeroen Straathof, tournament director of the EPC, is also enthusiastic: "Thanks to our cooperation with DPG Media, we can present parasport, and thus the European Para Championships, in a substantively strong way to a large audience. We are extremely happy with the huge reach of the AD, both in the Rotterdam region and in the rest of the country. And the online reach through platforms such as and Together, we ensure that paratop sport gets the attention it deserves."

The European Para Championships is a unique event that brings together 10 different parasports. Athletes will compete for European championships over two weeks in Para cycling, Para archery, Para badminton, Wheelchair tennis, Boccia, Goalball, Wheelchair basketball, Para judo, Shooting para sport and Para taekwondo. This multi-sport event not only offers athletes the chance to compete for top honours, but also to gain qualification points or direct qualification for the 2024 Paralympic Games in Paris.



The mission of the European Para Championships is to create a new standard for Paralympic sports events worldwide and to inspire people – with or without disabilities, rich or poor, young or old and regardless of background – to take up sports and exercise. We believe that only cooperation can help us succeed in this mission. By making connections, thinking big and believing in opportunities where others see limitations, we want to give adaptive sports the attention it deserves.
