Visually impaired children at the heart of the UEFA Super Cup 2018 opening ceremony

At UEFA Super Cup 2018 in Tallinn, a mixed choir of visual impaired and normal-sighted boys and girls aged between 7 and 15 have performed the Florence And The Machine song You’ve got the Love before kick-off on Wednesday 15 August. The choir made up of children from Tallinna Heleni Kool (Helen’s School in Tallinn), which teaches children with hearing and visual impairments, and multiple disabilities, and Tallinna Poistekoor (the Tallinn boys’ choir).

The support of the players of Real Madrid CF and Club Atlético de Madrid  highlighted the importance of integrating children with disabilities into society as well as giving opportunities to children in less-privileged parts of the world. The youngsters had the chance to meet players from both teams and share their mutual love of football ahead of the match.
