About This Page

Played in just about every country, the sport's success is due to the fact that it can be played by boys, girls, men and women of just about any physical build and ability. Football requires little in the way of specialized equipment and is organized using simple, intuitive rules. It's so fundamental to the future of Special Olympics' growth plans that it is the focus of our Global Football initiative. Football is perfect for Special Olympics Unified Sports, in which people with and without intellectual disabilities play on the same teams. In 2010, Special Olympics held its Unity Cup in connection with the World Cup. The coming years will see more exciting global and regional football events for Special Olympics.
