Spurs team up with Special Olympics project to host football match
Tottenham Hotspur hosted a game of football in partnership with Special Olympics Great Britain last week as part of an international summit to promote sport.
The game of football had team members with and without disabilities come together to play, to promote understanding and inclusion as part of the Beyond Sport Summit.
The 30 players from Special Olympics Great Britain Unified programme were also treated to top class training from the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation held at the White Hart Lane Community Sports Centre.
Karen Wallin of Special Olympics Great Britain said: “Unified Football helps to promote and define inclusion and integration at its best.
“It also provides a base for Special Olympics athletes with intellectual disabilities to develop their individual personal skills and enhances empowerment.”
