World Games 2019

TAQA is proud to support the upcoming Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi, taking place across Abu Dhabi from March 14 to 21, 2019. The World Games is one of the largest sports and humanitarian events in the world and will host more than 7,000 athletes from more than 170 nations to participate in 24 officially-sanctioned Olympic-style sports. The Games are considered more than a world-class sporting event. They are a catalyst to improve lives, to reach a full collective potential, and to create greater social inclusion for people with and without intellectual disabilities in the UAE, in the region and globally. Hosted for the first time in Abu Dhabi and in the broader Middle East, this year's Games marks the 50th anniversary of the Special Olympics and is aligned with the Year of Tolerance.
