The Games run from 13-20 September and will feature more than 2,000 athletes with intellectual (learning) disabilities from 58 countries. Athletes with intellectual disabilities will compete in ten sports, including football, judo, or swimming. But basketball and table tennis teams will be consist of persons with and without intellectual disabilities.

The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

The arrival of the Olympic flame from Olympia, Greece, kicks off the event on Tuesday (9 September). The torch will be carried through Belgium for four days until it arrives at the opening ceremony on Saturday (13 September) in Antwerp.

The EU has been a supporter of the event for over a decade. At the last Special Olympics in Greece in 2011, the Commission provided the European Special Olympics with €10 million in financing.
