Sharjah24 – WAM: Few days separate us from the launch of the Special Olympics World Games, Abu Dhabi 2019, when the UAE will host over 7,000 athletes from around the world during the largest global humanitarian sporting event.
The event’s organising committee includes qualified Emiratis who are leading the organisation of the event, to create an unprecedented moment in the history of the Special Olympics.
Members of the committee stressed that the UAE is ready to host these games, and all efforts are being made to ensure the success of the event, including preparing sporting facilities, accommodation and training facilities, as well as launching associated programmes, and confirming the participation of some 20,000 volunteers.

The opening ceremony will feature the participation of many countries in creating a work of art that will symbolise the solidarity of the Special Olympics and its humanitarian mission. The athletes will also be accompanied by celebrities and public figures who have made important contributions, won many tournaments, and achieved many accomplishments.
