BIRMINGHAM, Alabama (August 11, 2021) – The Birmingham Organizing Committee for The World Games 2022 today announced Spire as a Premier Partner of The World Games 2022.

Through the partnership, Spire will act as the presenting sponsor of gymnastics competitions at Legacy Arena and Sloss Furnaces, as well as the Spire: 10,000 Reasons Why initiative.

The Spire: 10,000 Reasons Why initiative was created to support local communities. Through the initiative, Spire will gift 10,000 tickets to The World Games 2022 to organizations and individuals in the communities they serve, giving more people the opportunity to experience The World Games 2022.

Spire is working closely with The World Games 2022 Vice President of Community Engagement Kathy Boswell to identify organizations for ticket donations.

“We’re proud to support The World Games 2022 and the Spire:10,000 Reasons Why program,” said Joe Hampton, president of Spire Alabama, Mississippi, and Gulf Coast. “And we’re honored to provide an opportunity for people in our communities who may otherwise not be able to attend this historic event. Enriching the lives of others very much reflects our mission and values.”

Boswell said she’s excited to have Spire on board.

“One of the core beliefs the Organizing Committee shares is that The World Games 2022 is an event for anyone and everyone,” Boswell said. “Having Spire on board is going to help us make that vision a reality.”
