The Inter Miami Special Olympics Unified Team has a roster of 10 players – six Special Olympics Florida athletes and four Unified partners. The squad was first introduced to fans in May during halftime of the Inter Miami match against D.C. United at DRV PNK Stadium. They have been preparing for their game in Chicago since then.
Sports brings together people with and without intellectual
disabilities, giving them the opportunity to train and compete on the
same team. The principle behind it is simple: playing together creates a
quick path to friendship and understanding.
