Promoting Special Olympics Hungary during the 14th European Football Week

By Orsolya Kárpáti

In cooperation with the Hungarian Football Federation Special Olympics Hungary athletes were involved in the Hungarian First League matches (8 matches in 7 different cities) between May 16-18, 2014. They were marching together with the professional players into the stadium and in some venues they kicked off. We also organized 2 grassroots football events on the UEFA Grassroots Day on May 21, where altogether 25 football teams enjoyed the festive atmosphere.
