CP United from Manchester will play Chelsea Whites in the FA Disability Cup Finals on Saturday 6th May at St Georges Park, Burton on Trent. The CP final is one of five disability football finals taking place on the day. Last year saw the national league’s northern conference champions, CP United win with an impressive 9-0 victory over southern conference champions Chelsea.
The FA Disability Cup was run for the first time in the 2015-16 season. The FA Disability Cup finals day is held annually in May at St. George’s Park, where the finals of a number of impairment-specific partner competitions are hosted under the banner of The FA Disability Cup.
2016-17 will see St. George’s Park host five cup finals on Saturday 6 May:
- Amputee cup final (adult male) in partnership with England Amputee Football Association
- Blind cup final (adult male) in partnership with the National Blind Football League
- Cerebral palsy cup final (adult male) in partnership with CP Sport
- Deaf cup final (U18 female) in partnership with English Schools Football Association
- Powerchair cup final (adult mixed-gender) in partnership with the Wheelchair Football Association
The FA Disability Cup ensures that players within impairment-specific football have a national FA competition which they can take part in with dreams of reaching St. George’s Park for finals day.
It is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the players, coaches and volunteers involved in our partner competitions, and provides a platform for raising awareness of the opportunities that exist for everyone within disability football.
