Impairment Specific Football

Football formats for all because it’s everyone’s game.

From grassroots to the international game, our aim is to create and sustain a culture across the sport where disabled people have access to all opportunities and feel they truly belong, both on and off the pitch.

We believe that disabled people should have the choice to be able to play mainstream football wherever possible. However, we realise that some disabled players may be better provided for in ‘pan-disability’ or ‘impairment-specific’ football, you can see more information about these different formats below:

Pan Disability Football
Amputee Football
Blind Football
Cerebral Palsy Football
Deaf Football
Frame Football
Partially Sighted Football
Powerchair Football
Other Disability Football
