To demonstrate inclusion through sports on 3 December 2018, the International Day of Disability, Special Olympics Bharat brought together two Unified teams to play a friendly match at the Frank Anthony Public School, New Delhi.

A unified 7-a-side football match was played for a duration of 35 minutes. The match aimed at initiating an extraordinary relationship with the Special Olympics athletes as the Unified Partners were the honourable diplomats from the GRULAC (Group of Latin America and Caribbean) Countries.

Following a meeting with His Excellency Hector Cueva Jacome, Ambassador of Ecuador, the occasion was earmarked for a Unified sporting experience and also viewed as an opportunity to relay a message of recognition and acceptance beyond national boundaries while celebrating 50 years of the Special Olympics movement.

Unified Sports encourages people with and without Intellectual disabilities to team up and play. This breaks barriers in as much as targeting common goals and sharing experiences, it is considered as a catalyst in promoting inclusion.

On the occasion of the International Day of Disability, His Excellency, Hector Cueva Jacome, Ambassador of Ecuador said, “Thank you to my colleagues from Latin America for being here today. We are here because we believe in being Unified with the Special Olympics movement in India. My father has worked with the Special Olympics for the last 40 years and now we are happy to be supporting Special Olympics Bharat”.
