THE IPC Athletics European Championships take place from August 18 to 23 at Swansea University.
The successful Swansea2014 bid has involved host venue Swansea University, Swansea Council, UK Athletics, Disability Sport Wales and the Welsh Government.
First Minister Carwyn Jones said: "The event will showcase both Swansea and Wales on the global stage and once again highlight our ability to successfully host major, high-profile sporting events."
Swansea Council leader David Phillips said the games were more evidence of Swansea's reputation as a sporting city.
"It is yet another event in Swansea which is creating a buzz," he added.
Swansea has a fine disability sport pedigree, with 15 medals at the London 2012 Paralympics — more than Switzerland, Denmark and Greece.
