Countdown to the Games
19-24 June 2022


The Special Olympics National Games Berlin 2022 are the biggest inclusive sports event of the year. Over 4,000 athletes with intellectual and multiple disabilities and Unified Partners will compete in 20 sports. The National Games are an important milestone on the way to the Special Olympics World Games Berlin 2023.

It is an ambitious project that will have a nationwide impact far beyond the six days of the event.

Through the power of sport and the emotions of the athletes, Special Olympics and its programs contribute to positively influencing the everyday lives of people with intellectual disabilities. With the overarching goal of social change, our partners help promote acceptance and inclusion, ensure accessibility and healthcare, and shape attitudes and mindsets.

True to our motto #UnbeatableTogether, we are delighted to have such strong support from many well-known sponsors who are fully committed to driving forward our plans for a more inclusive society, always putting our athletes at the center.
