Special Olympics GB Fan Zone Open at Westfield London


As more than 80 British athletes compete in Berlin at the Special Olympics World Games, Ocean Outdoor and Toyota (GB) are presenting edited highlights and live coverage of the action as it happens.

More than 7,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities are taking part in the world’s biggest inclusive sporting event of 2023, competing in 26 sports supported by 3,000 coaches and 20,000 volunteers.

Ocean is carrying highlights packages and medal winning moments from the Special Olympics World Games across 21 large format screens in 10 cities, including Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, Derby, Glasgow, Southampton, Nottingham and Newcastle, until June 26.

The centrepiece is a Special Olympics GB Fan Zone at Westfield London where visitors and fans can sit and watch the Games as they happen over the nine days of the competition. Coverage is presented in association with ESPN and the viewing zone is sponsored by Toyota (GB).

“This fantastic support from Ocean Outdoor and Toyota (GB) in providing digital screen content and the Westfield London Fan Park will substantially enhance the profile of our competing athletes during the Special Olympics World Games,” said Colin Dyer, chief executive of Special Olympics GB.


“However, more importantly, it makes more people aware of our work to increase sporting opportunities that can transform the lives of people with intellectual disabilities.”


Special Olympics GB is a non-profit organisation and the largest provider of year-round sports coaching and athletic competition in summer and winter sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.


Special Olympics GB currently has 95 all ability, inclusive sports clubs covering 27 sports across England, Scotland and Wales and reaches more than 6,500 athletes.
