An offer that allows school children to watch the World Para Athletics Championships in London for £3 will inspire them to get involved in sporting participation, according to sports minister Tracey Crouch.

Around 90,000 pupils will receive discounted entry for the event at the London Stadium (formerly the Olympic Stadium) – which takes place from 14 to 23 July 2017.

Accompanying teachers and adults will be granted free admission.

Crouch said it was an “absolutely fantastic offer” and a “real opportunity for people to see heroes”.

“I think it’s really important we enable people to see world-class para sport,” said the Chatham and Aylesford MP.

“I think it will go on to inspire many people to get involved in sport, whether it’s para sport or another type of sport,” she added. “I think it’s a real opportunity for school children to see their heroes from Rio last year and engage in sport in general.”

More than 3,000 athletes from 200 countries will take part in the IAAF World Championships and World Para Athletics Championships.
