On December 1, 2013, Australia will host the inaugural Special Olympics Asia Pacific Games in the beautiful city of Newcastle, New South Wales and provide 2500 Special Olympics athletes with an intellectual disability from more than 32 countries with the opportunity to compete, celebrate and achieve their personal best.
This spectacular event will happen thanks to the 600 volunteer coaches and officials plus over 5,000 games volunteers who will ensure the athletes have the experience of a life time. Over 200,000 spectators will attend, with a spectacular opening ceremony on Sunday evening at Hunter Stadium.
Purchase your tickets online to be seated with the Aussie Green and Gold Army. There are only 1000 seats for this section of the stadium. Together we will cheer and celebrate our 400 athletes marching into the opening ceremony. Click here to buy tickets.
We still need volunteer help, click here to register as a volunteer.
