Athletics (22 May), wheelchair basketball, seven-a-side football (both 23-26 May) and Boccia (24 May) are the sports on offer at the only annual elite international multi-sport disability event in the world.
Tickets for all events are now on general sale as defending champions Great Britain prepare to take on the Americas, Europe and the Rest of the World across the various sports.
Great Britain seven-a-side cerebral palsy head coach Lyndon Lynch has named a strong squad to take on Brazil, Republic of Ireland and the USA.
On our day we can beat anyone in the world - Matt Dimbylow
“Our squad is in tremendous shape and I know that everyone involved with the team is really looking forward to the BT Paralympic World Cup," said Lynch.
“We’ve got a great mixture of older and younger players, with a whole wealth of experience between them, so it’s just the right ingredients for a successful campaign up in Manchester.
“With the Paralympics just around the corner, the lads will be desperate to put in some top draw performances, performances they can take away with them into the Games.
And Dimbylow, one of only three players who finished seventh in Beijing in 2008, is confident his team has a realistic prospect of success.
“On our day we can beat anyone in the world and that’s the attitude we need to take against some very tough opposition at the BT Paralympic World Cup," said the 41-year-old.
However, sitting volleyball has been withdrawn from the event after suitable opposition could not be found in time.
"We understand that this is an important period in both individual athletes and team preparations for London 2012 and that this has made it difficult to source international competition," said Volleyball England’s sitting volleyball development manager Daniel Griffin.
"Instead of competing, the GB players will continue their own training and preparations for the Games and we look forward to the next opportunity to compete in front of a home crowd, which will be at London 2012.”
It will be great for the British competitors to experience the support of a home crowd - BPA boss Tim Hollingsworth
As official broadcaster of the London 2012 Paralympic Games, Channel 4 will be focusing its attention on all the action in Manchester.
"Channel 4 is committed to raising awareness of Paralympic sport and its elite nature across the year to give it the prominence it deserves," said Deborah Poulton, Project Leader Paralympics at Channel 4.
"The BT Paralympic World Cup is a great example of this as it brings together some of the best Paralympians in the world over four days of sporting excellence and Channel 4 will once again put our viewers at the heart of the action.”
Tim Hollingsworth, chief executive of the British Paralympic Association, encouraged the British public to buy tickets for the event.
"It will be a brilliant opportunity to see British athletes and their international competition in action ahead of London 2012, and it will be great for the British competitors to experience the support of a home crowd," he added.
Tickets are available to purchase on the official BT Paralympic World Cup website.
