Soccer Unites People

As one of the world's leading athletic events, since 1968 and every two years, thousands of Special Olympics athletes from around the world come together to showcase their athletic skills and celebrate the spirit of Special Olympics.

Special Olympics recently announced the launch of a new global initiative to expand football opportunities for players with intellectual disabilities. This was presented at a press conference prior to the final of the FIFA Women's World Cup China 2007 in Shanghai.

Special Olympics is the world's largest sports programme for people with intellectual disabilities, providing year-round training and competition for more than 2.5 million athletes in 165 countries. Football (Soccer) is one of the major sports in Special Olympics, with more than 300,000 players participating world wide.

Ambassador and Advisory Committee Member for Special Olympics Global Football Teofilo Cubillas, has been involved in Special Olympics for many years. “After I played with Special Olympics athletes, I decided to sign up for life.” Teofilo's  lifetime commitment will help support Special Olympics Global Football (Soccer) Initiative and its effort to increase participation from 300,000 to 500,000 worldwide in the next four years. We support and agree 100% with  FIFA’s head of Corporate Social Responsibility Federico Adiechi:  “Special Olympics is one of the best examples in the world of how football promotes hope and positive social change.

For the Cubillas family, every effort from these athletes to deliver the best during their competitions; their joy and humor; appreciation and sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other athletes and the community; and the best soul medicine: laughter, are some of the reasons why we are proud of being part of the Special Olympics Games by accepting this lifetime commitment
