Kim Källström often speaks of his grandmother as the source for his inspiration and vision: “She worked with children and youths with intellectual disabilities for a long time. My wish is that as many people as possible will get the opportunity to be part of the fellowship and joy that football creates”, he said. “Taking part in the world’s largest football tournament, The Gothia Cup, will be a memory for life for the athletes of Special Olympics and it will increase respect and understanding of people with intellectual disabilities.” - Kim Källström.
