2018 USA Games x Seattle Reign
Beth Knox, our President & CEO, was honored as a Reign FC Legend in recognition of her extraordinary contribution to our community on July 22nd at the Reign FC vs Sky Blue FC match.
Showcasing the accessibility of their technology, Microsoft, Premier Partner of the USA Games, provided fans with the opportunity to play XBOX games with Special Olympics Washington athletes on the concourse.
At halftime, Special Olympics Washington athletes and Seattle Reign FC fans competed in a penalty kick shootout, with all participants winning an XBOX and unique Special Olympics branded controller, courtesy of Microsoft. After the shootout, all athletes formed a high-five line to welcome the Reign FC players back onto the pitch for the second half.
A big thanks to our partners, Microsoft and Seattle Reign FC, for creating an unforgettable experience for local Special Olympics athletes and helping raise the profile of the 2018 USA Games, as we prepare for the Games next summer.
