Ahead of World Children's Day, the Special Olympics Bharat (SO Bharat) Maharashtra team was invited by the Indian Super League side Mumbai City FC to their training session where they got a chance to meet, interact and practice with them.

The objective of SO Bharat is to help in  improving the health and well-being of children with intellectual disabilities and to enable them to reach their full potential. The organization is also making conscious efforts towards making sport as a platform for social inclusion for the special athletes, promoting unified and inclusive sport in their programmes.

The SO Bharat athletes got a chance to spend an evening with the Islanders' first team, where both sets shared experiences of the challenges each face in their fight to be better every day. Post the training session, the Islanders presented the SO Bharat team with a Mumbai City FC shirt and a football autographed by the squad as a token of appreciation.

Mumbai City FC continue their ISL campaign as they take on NorthEast United in an away game on November 27.
