Fans in the Stands

Our Fans in the Stands program is a free participation program for our competitions. It brings you and your Fan Team up close to our athletes and into the thick of the action. You can be there when the German Unified Handball team celebrates its first victory, cheer on the 100m sprints or witness the fight for gold in the Judo competition.

Cheer on the athletes and experience the Special Olympics spirit. Register yourself and your Fan Team and benefit from the many advantages the program has to offer.

Registrations have now closed for our Fans in the Stands program for the National Games.

If you have any questions you can reach us at fansinthestands@berlin2023.org.

We hope you can join us for the Special Olympics World Games in 2023!
