Orlando to Host 2022 Special Olympics

Special Olympics

Today, Special Olympics Florida and Special Olympics North America announced that Orlando, Florida will be the host city of the 2022 Special Olympics as the Games celebrate their 50th anniversary.

The Special Olympics will run June 5 – June 10, 2022 with events taking place at the YMCA Aquatic Center, the U.S. Tennis Association campus in Lake Nona, Walt Disney World Resort, and Boardwalk Bowl.

The games will consist of 15 team and individual sports and include more than 4,000 athletes, 10,000 volunteers, 1,500 coaches, and 75,000 fans from all across the United States. And now, for the first time, the Special Olympics Caribbean program will be invited to participate in the Games.

Not only is the excitement building among athletes and fans, but there is potential for the Special Olympics 2022 Games to generate up to $61 million in economic impact for the Orlando area.
