The World Games 2021 will be a transformational opportunity for Birmingham, generating global media exposure and welcoming athletes and fans from around the world – but it can’t happen on its own. To execute an event of this size, it takes support from local residents and the business community.
That’s where The World Games 2021’s Foundation Partners come in.
Foundation Partners have committed support to The Games at the highest level. Each of these partners will play a unique role in The Games and leave a lasting impression on the city of Birmingham and the global visitors who will attend the event.
Over the next few months, we’ll be highlighting the first Foundation Partners of The World Games 2021, starting with Regions Bank.

During The World Games 2021, Regions Bank will serve as the title sponsor of The World Games Plaza, a free, family-friendly celebration of The Games that visitors and Birmingham locals alike are invited to enjoy. The plaza will be open July 16 – 25, 2021, and will feature entertainment, food, sports demonstrations and coverage of ongoing events.
