Special Olympics Global Football

The Global Football initiative gives more and more Special Olympics athletes the chance to play the most popular sport in the world -- football (soccer). The visibility and power of football brings greater awareness, acceptance and respect for people with intellectual disabilities.


What is Global Football

Football is the world’s most popular sport. No other sport has its reach and impact. We know football transforms athletes, and we believe it has the popularity and power to help transform attitudes about intellectual disability as well. LEARN MORE ››
