Brick will be title sponsor of the Brick Parkour Asian Tour, which will be held in six countries across South-East Asia in August 2023. Brick will supply two sets of Parkour obstacles to the national gymnastics governing bodies in Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.
Brick Brand Manager Mathieu Dumet expressed his ambitions for the Tour: “We’re delighted to join with the FIG for this groundbreaking new tour. One of the key ambitions of Brick is to inspire as many people as possible to get involved with Parkour and we feel this tour gives us the perfect platform to introduce a whole new audience to the sport.”
FIG President Morinari Watanabe declared: “This new partnership with Brick represents a significant investment in the development of Parkour in South-East Asia. The Brick Parkour Asian Tour will allow us to support the Parkour communities across the region. It will also allow the next generation of young athletes to try out for themselves this up-and-coming urban sport with expert guidance from one of the sport’s co-founders, as well as from experienced FIG athletes.”
Thanks to support from sponsor AEON Mall, the Tour will be held at AEON shopping malls in the cities of Hanoi, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur and Phnom Penh. The FIG Parkour Asian Tour presented by Brick will also stop at Centralworld Square in the heart of downtown Bangkok and at Quirino Grandstand in Manila.
A spokesperson for AEON Mall said, “we, AEON are honored to have the Brick Parkour Asian tour conducted by FIG and each local Gymnastic Federation in our malls. Lately Parkour has attracted followers as an urban sport all over the world.
