We are Emil's Sports, an association set up by the Emil Foundation to support young disabled athletes. This is done in three main areas - direct financial support, creating new sporting opportunities and organising sporting events.
The growing interest of children and young people in sport and their needs makes us very happy on the one hand, but on the other hand, it also obliges us and puts great financial demands on us and the need to find new sources of support.
That is why we decided to approach personalities from the field of sport, culture, private sector and political and public life to help us and we founded

Zahuta Legal has been "watching our backs" since 2016. It has been providing us with all the legal services of the Foundation free of charge all the time. Emil Fund and the Emil's Sports Association, which he founded.

It is therefore not surprising that he also revised the written charter of the Club Ambassadors of the Emil Open, to which we now welcome him and thank him for everything!

The President of the Czech-Moravian Confederation of Trade Unions

We met Josef for the first time at the Emil Open 2020. His enthusiasm for the Games, empathy and the fact that he himself has a niece in a wheelchair brought us together to help the handicapped, which continues to this day. This year he heard our „call for help" and actively began to solve the loss of this year's Emil Open. He came up with the idea of forming an Emil Open Ambassadors Club, which he immediately became actively involved in himself. His direct financial support and networking with other partners is already helping us cover the loss. And not only that. He is actively helping us on a national level to find a systemic solution to anchor the Emil Open and our unregistered athletes.

Joseph, thank you for being a part of this.

We introduce the founding deed of the Ambassadors Club

Many children and young people with disabilities do not have many opportunities for sport. One of them is the European Youth Gamesthe for Disabled Emil Open. But these are in financial trouble due to price increases and the growing interest of children. In order to continue with all those interested in sports, the Emil Open representatives Pavel Zbožínek and Radek Procházka, together with Josef Středula, founded the Emil Open Ambassadors Club to support the games.


Establishing the Emil Open Ambassador Club

With the growing interest in the Emil Open, the European Youth Games for the Disabled, Josef Středula initiated the creation of the Ambassadors Club. Together with Emil Open President Pavel Zbožínek and Paralympian Radek Procházka, the idea was developed and you can now find out more. Why was the club created, for what purpose and what is the idea? Find out in the short introductory video.


Emil Open calls for help

Let's Save Emil Open! is the name of a campaign we do not want to complain, cry, moan ... We are grateful for the great support of all our existing partners, especially the Statutory City of Brno and the South Moravian Region. With this campaign we want to respond to the ever increasing interest of young disabled athletes in the Emil Open and to the fact that our existing partners simply do not have any more opportunities to support our games.
