England: Jack Grealish takes up new Special Olympics role

England and Manchester City midfielder Jack Grealish signed up to Special Olympics GB as an ambassador for greater inclusion in the sport. He signed up to help the visibility of the charity’s work for the one and a half million people that suffer from intellectual disabilities in Great Britain. The organization is a non-profit and helps provide sports training and competitions to people with intellectual disabilities.

“I’ve been thinking for some time about how I can best use the platform football has given me to create a positive change, and it had to be something really close to my heart,” England midfielder Jack Grealish said. “Special Olympics GB is such an important organization, playing a huge role in tackling the lack of inclusion for hundreds of thousands of kids in the UK with intellectual disabilities. Nobody should be excluded from opportunities, and I can’t stand bullying or discrimination. In my new role with Special Olympics GB, I’m proud to stand side-by-side with all the children, young people, and adults living with intellectual disabilities, and the incredible families who support them. I hope that everyone in Great Britain gets behind Special Olympics GB and its incredible athletes and volunteers.”

“Everyone at Special Olympics is delighted and excited Jack has agreed to join Special Olympics GB as a principal ambassador,” CEO of Special Olympics, Colin Dyer said. “After a truly challenging time for many people during the pandemic, particularly those with intellectual disabilities, there is so much positive momentum in Special Olympics GB at this time, it is the perfect moment to welcome Jack to the family. We look forward to continuing to add to our diverse group of Ambassadors to accompany Jack on his new mission with Special Olympics GB in the near future.”
