During the WWE February 2015 live tour in Abu Dhabi, Special Olympics athletes from the United Arab Emirates met WWE superstars Dolph Ziegler & Sami Zayn and took photos with them while holding a Special Olympics-branded ball.
The show took place on Friday, 13 February in Zayed Sports City Tennis Stadium, and the WWE stars showed their deep support to the Special Olympics Movement and athletes. Special Olympics athletes were invited to attend the WWE live show.
The Middle East North Africa office of Special Olympics agreed to participate in such a great event and seized this opportunity to encourage people everywhere to help create more unified communities around the world. The partnership between Special Olympics and WWE began years ago, then their support evolved in 2013 when they became a Founding Partner of the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games and will further expand their reach to spread awareness, promote the ideals of acceptance and inclusion through sport, and showcase the abilities of athletes with intellectual disabilities.
